Hah, I just noticed that Mitch is also the administrator of this
mailing list, so I guess he really would know. I didn't really doubt
him, but I was holding out hope that there might be a GitHub or GitLab
-style way of submitting code changes. For those platforms, you don't
have to be a trusted member of the development team to make pull/merge
requests because changes can be reviewed before accepting into the code
base. And at the very least, they seem like an aesthetic upgrade from
the GNOME mailing list archives. I'M JUST SAYING. :P
Pat, static.gimp.org looks really good! I'm also glad about the switch

* A couple times, in the "Hacking" and "How To Submit Your Changes" sections, I tried to borrow the tone of
Wikipedia's "Be Bold" guidelines.
* I added a list of links to the most important GIMP repositories. I was going to mention gimp-web-devel in
this list, but it looks like no one has pushed any commits there since 2013. Perhaps that repo should be
See the attached patch file.
I'm of course open to feedback.

Yes, the preferred method until you're known and trusted is likely to
the website from git, make your proposed changes and send a patch to
Do note that we are in the process of migrating the site to a
back-end infrastructure - so your patch _may_ be better aimed at
static.gimp.org (in the gimp-web-static branch of gimp-web). Feel
poke me if you need further instructions (because I still haven't
the README that jimmac suggested a over a month ago).
