developers communication

Hi devs,

I would like to know where the devs ml/channel/comunication/whatever really is, because this, in my opinion, this seems not to be the case.

I hardly believe that all developing effort comunication pass by here, since the message rate seems to be very low.

I am asking this clarification because as a translator I need to keep up and follow the devs' going on discussions.

One question for all: is it just my impression or the 2.10 dev branch is slowing down and the master branch accelerating? Are we next to a GIMP 3.x version? For this reason, is it better that I less and less dedicate my time on the 2.10 branch and start focusing on the master branch? Please give me some hint...

I am asking this because I use to compile GIMP from source to be able to incrementally translate it just to be ready when it will come out the next stable version. I always miss the string freeze period (if there was any) since I never seen any "string freeze announcement" in this list (another reason why it seems dead or unused at all by devs), therfore I usually just try to keep up with the devs branchs to assure that when some new GIMP version comes out, that is completely or almost completely translated.

Please help me optimizing my translation support,

TIA

Best,

PS: sorry for my bad English, my Italian is way better... ;-)

The master branch gets all the new stuff, the gimp-2-10 branch gets only the safe part of that -- both bugfixes and new features.

Are we next to a GIMP 3.x version?

Absolutely not.

As a translator, you shouldn't bother about the master branch right now.

Also, there is not much difference between the two branches, because most new features end up in 2.10.x anyway.

I see, thanks!

Phew, thanks! ;-)

Thanks again for this advice.

Good.

Sorry, I sometimes got paranoic and think to be missing something or doing all wrong and such and so I, from time to time, need some reaussurance. Thanks for the sympathy!
