Re: [Gimp-developer] Regular GIMP news; lack of developers

that's not mean that you are right. 
please think from the user perspective
indeed you don't expect them to link to your builds 
that's does not mean that they should not do that. 

from a developer point of view they have some reasons for that - connected with the credibility of the GIMP stable release probably.

why they don't point to your builds ? ..I don't know. 
this is a gap on communication also - many users ..let say early adopters can use those unstable builds for giving back bug reports or usability issues. 

reducing the gap - you reduce the feedback. 

> I would expect the user groups to keep a link to

this is a problem of egg and chicken - they would not be there (90% of them - I take out the "visitors by mistake" of gimpusers) if they don't have GIMP already.

yes - it's all about communication - why stay hide ? why so much caution and for what reason ? too much Ying or too much Yang is not good either - a strong community involve communication ..consider those links as bridges. Maybe you can't imagine how powerful media vector Internet is ;)

I would think this is the other way around? :) I would expect the user
groups to keep a link to I build Windows versions and don't
expect to link to my site. Moreover, there are other sites
such as (my favorite),, etc. Should they be
linked as well? :)
