I put in many years as one of the primary list admins for an open source 
project's -users list (similar to gimp-user) and -dev list, organizing 
and adding to the the FAQ, answering questions on both lists, writing 
documentation, submitting bug reports, feature requests, and proposing 
UI improvements.  I'm quite aware of how open source projects are 
developed, and I've paid my dues volunteering.  I have a right to give 
my feedback when I feel an OS project is misguided and has overlooked 
critical aspects of design such as consistent tool use (backwards 
compatible), intuitive UI, and good documentation.
