Re(3): I agree. The GIMP team talks out of both sides of its mouth ...

I would have left out the statement: "In general I would like to point out that it is unlikely that any of the active core developers will pick up your feature requests." Statements like this basically say that "we don't want 'your' feature requests. Don't even bother submitting any." How about providing a place on the gimp home site for feature requests, and allowing users to browse them and vote for ones they like? That would ensure that the developers are more in tune with ideas from the users, and give a specific place for a feature request to go, rather than the current process of bouncing the user between Bugzilla and the developers mailing list.

I don't have all of the answers, but anyone willing to scroll through the list or Bugzilla can see there is a problem.
