Hello dear devs!
I was wondering if, when the GIMP version 2.10 is ready (BTW:
forecast of the release date?) it will contain the old beloved
script-fus with the file->button and file->logo menu entries.
I am asking this because I use to compile an up-to-date dev
version and I am not observing any menu entry of such.

Perhaps there were some decisions about it that i missed?

I think this is the commit you are looking for:

    scripts: remove the entries registered in the create menu

These menu entries have been hidden for half a decade in the
development version without people seriously missing them. The scripts
have an element of nostalgia for people into 90s webdesign, and are
good candidates for someone to package as a third party nostalgia pack
for GIMP. They are however not the best thing to have cluttering the
menus of the default install for all new operators of the software;
similar effects would rather be achieved through other non-destructive
means in the coming GEGL powered feature. Similar to how we really
want to clean up the default set of brushes and patterns - style,
technique and technology have moved on since GIMPs first decade -
improving the usability and discoverability includes making decisions
about removing/hiding things.
