If we can create a database, someone can get libedit to work 100%!
There is no excuse for this not being done, seeing that libreadline
has been (viral) GPL forever and has changed APIs regularly and
broken things for us.

The second reason [for the delayed GIMP 2.8 release] is that we
develop features directly on the main branch. That this is a
problem is highly related to that developers come and go. In fact,
it is the reason we have long development cycles overall. There is
almost always a feature on the main branch that is incomplete. This
has the sad side effect that if someone contributes a complete
feature in the beginning of a development cycle, it will literally
take years before that features reaches a wide audience.
