The outsiders can read regular news at or our very active
Google+ page. If the outsiders choose not to do that, I fail to see
how else I can get the message through. It's not as if I should be
knocking on every door asking "Any potential GIMP contributors
inside"? This is really, really simple :)

There are different reasons for a patch to not be integrated. Not all
of that has something to do with "unsystematic tinkering".
