Re: [Gimp-developer] Please migrate to GitHub/CMake

In my experience "ain't broke" is a standard mantra of organizations
stuck in the past.

It's a tent-pole phrase that does not explain anything, and justifies
whatever practices you want it to justify.

I say waiting 3 weeks for build under some platform is broken as hell,
given you shoot for mutiplatform-ity.

@Alexandre - what exactly is your point here? I did not build Gimp
from source, ever.

I'm confident there is nothing in your Makefiles that is beyond human

 Again, since you said explicitly you are not making infra decisions,
can I talk to the one/s who do?

For sake of absolutely sane and productive discussion. If you want of course.

@ All, since we are having this conversation, one thing I always wanted to ask.
Why do you spend your time on filters. I mean, you as a team spend
month(at least this is my impression from backlogs) on fixing, porting
them, etc, etc.
I can't recall I time I've ever used anything except Sharpen/Blur.

I mean, why carry the load of all the "Van Gogh"s and "Ripple"s ( no
offence to their authors) if you can't release a minor version faster
that once a half a year \ major things like transform tool get fixed
very slowly? IMHO you are painting the car that loses it's wheels
every now and then.

Alexandre meant to be dismissive or rude with his "No" (and I think
Carol's comment was meant ironically although I'm not certain).

Oh, in real, they truly concerned me.  AND they did make me cry at the
meeting about the web site, so it really depends on the day and the mood
for how much I agree they are jerks or not.

I see some problems with GIMP development:

1. It's been taking too long to release new major versions.

Shlomi knows that it is taking the same amount of time that all the
others did.

I have been concerned because work seems to have stopped on
the gtk3 branch....

I build GIMP from git on my Mageia cauldron system. Yes, there are some
 issues (I have to build gegl without video capture support for
example, because there's no video device on my system since I don't
have a camera) but if you have problems I'm happy to try & help.

I was told by one of the gimp-1.2 guys that Liam had joined the dark side.
