When open source projects close the process, something's wrong

This article is completely stupid...
Gimp and oxygen dev, did try to open their work BEFORE it is released. Please do note that they could have NOT done so. A lot of project open the source AFTER the software is released.
I assume it would have not shocked you if gimp devs would have made their choices silently on a private mailing list without asking any user... and then publishing the code on some svn repository (with read only access of course). That would have been a really "true" and legal open development process in your eyes.
You are "spitting in the soup" as we say in France.
