Re: [Gimp-developer] Enhancement request policy

The great advantage of the bug-tracker is that it allows requests to be
handled in a structured way.  It is easy to find specific types of
enhancement requests in the bug-tracker and examine the priority they have
been given and the discussion that followed them.  Getting this information
from a forum is usually much more difficult.

It is quite reasonable to bring up enhancement ideas in a forum and discuss
them there until they are reasonably specific and coherent, but once that
has happened it is helpful to have an enhancement request created in the
bug-tracker.  If the developers don't like them, they can always be
classified as WONTFIX or NOTABUG.

My point of view is: enchancements should be discussed on the forum,
not in a bugtracker. Here is what DispCalGUI has:

Mailing list is not exceptionally convenient for many people (myself
included. I just mailed topic starter instead of mailing to the list
thinking that replying to mail will get it done. I now pressed "reply
to all") but may be still better than discussing enchancements in

Imgaine that every user wants something new. Because of number of
users being magnitudes larger than number of developers (who are not
paid) and those willing to contribute the project is guaranteed to
drown in requests.

Bugtracker is for developers and they should pick doable tasks from
forum themselves.
