I'm afraid it's not really a client/server relation and IMO you're a
bit wrong with that assertion. It's more a server/user, and the service
is free. The user in that case is free to use or not, there's no
commercial contract between the user and the server/service. I don't
think there's even a moral obligation for the server to accept any kind
of criticism or request. You would contribute with sponsoring and
donations, I would be the same. After that, it depends on people, both
on server and user bases. According to the project team, it's often
very different. And user requests are always taken into account
differently, but this also depends on the user himself and the way he submit requests or feedback. Of course my words are mine (I'm a both a user and developer free and open-source software), I'm not talking in
the name of the Gimp team.

Simply put, we have a primary goal: making GIMP a great tool for
advanced users and professionals. If we can make it better for  users
who have simple requirements, then it's a nice coincidence (which
already is a case).

But we shall not reverse the strategy back towards folks who are happy
with a handful of filters and 8bpc, come hell or high water.

Totally AGREE - Thanks you!!!!
