Dear Sir or Madam,
I do hope my query doesn't automatically go out to all developers - I don't want to pester everyone with 
it!  My apologies if I have done so.

I just have a query about GIMP and if it is possible to change names of brushes - the boxes that I would 
have expected to take input for names don't let me do so which is why I'm addressing this to developers 

So - indeed, it is an UI issue -GIMP currently  don't distinguish
between resources, including brushes, which are marked as read only
(either in the file system, or just marked as from a folder made
read-only in the preferences).  So, brush names for new brushes should
be changeable - but to change the name of brushes that ship with GIMP
you have to move then to a user writable location, and make the proper
changes in the Brush folders page in the preferences.

I notice also that there is a "filter" option and wondered how a person might tag brushes with filterable 

Maybe you are mistaking the brush name for brush tags?
Please take a look at the documentation and  check if that is the case:

I attached an image with a couple of screenshots added in case I am not being clear - I don't know the 
names for the 'bits' and am just starting as a gimp user.

The mail list does not accept attached files - if I had not addressed
your issues correctly, please post your image somewhere on the web and
send us the link.

Also, you can try e-mailing the user list instead of here - there
should be more people willing to help with day-to-day using issues
than here.

Thanking you in advance for any advice you may be able to offer me,

Andrew Francis
