Fallacy #1(at least I consider it #1) w/ regards to Open Source
development, "I can't help because I'm not a programmer/coder".

There are many ways to be helpful and be part of the "development
team", submit bugs, submit suggestions/wishlist, write docs/howtos,
help out w/ the website, demo The Gimp to people local to you, etc...
. This applies to almost any project.
