Peter, and everyone else, excuse me for taking so long to reply.

excuse me too, I was travelling the last week and a half

Aleksandar, thank you for actually keeping the discussion
alive, because as we all might have noticed:

anyone who has ever done development on GIMP user interface
seems to be sitting out this thread, probably waiting for
this to blow over.

well, that will be a whole lot of sitting, because I am
sitting too, in strike.

if GIMP as a project likes to have interaction design and
usability work done for it, then we need to recover the
implicit understanding of a couple of years ago, when
Sven reached out and recruited me to heal the patient
(== GIMP) and endowed his maintainer authority to
get it executed in code; when I had working ‘I help you,
you help me’ relationships with developers.

the outreach, endowment, the relationships, they need to
be recovered and this time explicitly, in writing, here on
this list, not in gone-tomorrow talk on irc.

I will go into Aleksandar’s long analysis and argument
another day (busy now), but if we want to recover,
then GIMP user interface developers, past and precent,
better get involved in this thread.
