How hard would it be to add meaningful usage statistics in Gimp?

I'm not sure there is an easy way to add meaningful usage statistics. I think the better course really might be to follow Krita's lead and ask actual and potential users who fall into GIMP's "target users" groups to use GIMP and provide feedback on what works, what doesn't work, what could be better, and so on.

Obviously there are people right on this list who can share their workflows and the useability problems they've encountered, perhaps in a more structured way than popping onto the list with "the export dialog needs to be improved" (that was my latest complaint) or "adding a new layer is cumbersome" (which it really is unless you know about click-shift and dragging colors).

Hi Elle. I may be one of the people you are looking for, Re:
professional Photoshop user who now does everything in GIMP. I'm at
your service. Please let me know how I can best help.

C R offered to share his workflow. C R, do you primarily do product photography? Or also other kinds of photography?

I'm also an ex-Photoshop user, and the more I use high bit depth GIMP, the more I like it, but I keep running into the same useability issues over and over again. I mostly use GIMP for editing photographs. I did a marathon editing session and kept useability notes, which I could organize into a "top ten" list.

What other categories of uses for GIMP are represented by users on this list?

Would any of you be interested in "watching yourself edit", so to speak, and putting together a short description of your workflow and your personal "top ten useability issues", and maybe also say what you like about GIMP?

And if five or ten or twenty people on this list go to the trouble of putting together a short description of their workflow, plus their personal "top ten useability issues", would any of the GIMP developers be in a position to make use of the collected information?
