You made a blog post, saying how small is the team and how much work you all do.
Now, a person says "I'd like to suggest" and your reply is basically
"f*** off".

It's an interesting way to interpret a simple 'no'.

Turning tables much? You should interpret the number of developers on
the projects into reasons of it being so.

I wrote 2 emails saying I can help with build infra, which
is listed as a need in YOUR blog post. I got no reply.

Yes, our email communication needs to improve. However, do I really
need to bring up our private email exchange where I explained to you
that most dev conversations take place on IRC and that the difficult
topics on the list barely ever take off?

Apparently you are not too busy to participate in flame, but too busy
to see an email from potential contributor.

Last time I've used IRC was like 10 years ago. Another archaic tech
I(anyone else willing to participate) have to use because why exactly?

Emails are at least searchable.

I'm not planning to work on GIMP any more, thank you very much.

About your 3 cases of not responding - it's not my problem. It's your
problem, as a maintainer of OSS.

Blaming is _exactly_ what was sorely missing on the list. Thank you.

Turning tables #2. You pointed to 3 times you did not get the answer
as a reason to dump Github idea. You are blaming.
I'm underlining your position, along with it's consequences, that's all.

If you seriously imply that Github is not more useful as a service
than, than I'm safe in betting you are writing code in
vi or something.

GitHub is full of developers who use Vi. Stuff like node-x11 is
actually written by dedicated Vi users, and I can think of a very few
things that are more hip than node.js.

Personally, whenever I actually open a source code file (which is
maybe once or twice a year), I do it in Sublime Text.

What's your _actual_ point? Do you have one?

That Gimp project is unfriendly, here I spelled it for you.

Every time something like this comes up there is always tha same
mantra about GIMP being so unique and unimaginably cool piece of
software that it grants you the right to do whatever you want. You
know, emulating Linus only works if you wrote Linux. There is plethora
of other image editors, I can't see why I should not help someone else

Nor can I.

who knows better than behaving like a jerk.

Name-calling was sorely missing on this list too. Again, thank you.

If you are done with that, what are, in your opinion, the actual
advantages of relying on GitHub other than it's full of hip people who
despise Vi?

Turning tables #3.

You know, issues, project boards, UI what does not require reloading a
page to see the update, etc,etc.

But that is for hipsters, of course. Nothing to do with giving people
idea what how than can contribute.
