Call me cynical, but someone that needs really more detailed
instructions will likely not have the programming background to be a
useful Gimp developer. Of course I expect potential Gimp contributors to
be somewhat "already-knowledgeable", at least in the basics of Linux
application development.

I would not reduce it to only Linux development:
We have a big lack of Windows developers or they have not enough
time, so Windows developers are very welcome, too.

And: contributions are not only coding. For example user support,
bug reporting and triaging, documentation, translation, contributing
high-quality assets, test and constructive user feedback/domain
guidance, website maintenance are also contributions and they don't
need knowledge of Linux application development.

I totally agree with that, but I'll add that these people don't really need to build their own Gimp either.
