[Gimp-developer] Easy access for contributors


it was easier for new developers to contribute, if they had a ready-to-use development environment. Not everybody wanting to help, is a born Linux administrator by himself to setup a suitable programming environment. There are many Windows or Mac users, who'd like to help, but are helpless themselves in setting up the necessary environment and keeping it up to date. How about a pre-built developer virtual machine, created with say SUSE factory and downloadable from the GIMP developers page? I guess, there a projects out there, which already provide the service of building ready-to-use VM's, like Turnkey Linux. Linux distributions nowadays have a package manager to constantly update the VM, so the main effort would be once.

Best regards,
