This statement makes me very anxious.  Last month I sent a patch which
rectifies some behaviors of NSImageView, which is not specified by OpenStep
spec, but by Cocoa one.  Seemingly my contribution is not welcome and thus
ignored.  Sign.

It wasn't ignored, it just fell through the cracks (or get really
delayed, depending on how you look at it). This is free software, and
(most? all?) of those working on it are volunteers with a finite amount
of time to spend on it, so I think this it to be expected. I know that
I, at least, have tons of TODOs for GNUstep and other projects, so
things do get pushed aside by high-priority stuff, and sometimes lost
completely. Thus, please don't interpret this as your contribution not
being welcome. (If I thought it wasn't, I would have told you so. ;-)

Anyway, as a general suggestion, if there've been no replies about a
patch for a few weeks, a gentle reminder ping would be nice. :) Filing a
proper bug/patch report on savannah is also a good idea; that way, it
won't be lost.

Ah, my comment is by no means for blaming any reviewers.  If you feel so, I
apologize to you for it.  My real intention was to have everyone know the
fact in such a way that nobody is set fire by it.  But it resulted in a
reaction I didn't expect.  I should have written in a different way...

The explantion above is a supplementary instruction that should be
kept in mind for those who want to contribute their patches to GNUstep. I shall observe it.
