I have found your comments on another list which I occasionally read
to usually be relevant.  But this sounds like trolling: "Give up
gimp and move to kde".  I have no great love for most gnome
applications, but I can still build gimp (on my xfce system) without
many dependencies.  Compare that to kde (specifically, kf5) where a
metric shed-load of packages need to be installed.  I typically
build development (temporary) desktop systems every couple of
months, and the churn needed for building kf5 is unmanageable.

I'm sorry to see this list go, but when I need help I'll either
post on pixels.us (most of my gimp usage is for photo-manipulation)
or subscribe to https://discourse.gnome.org/
