In some cases it is even helpful to tell the authors how useful their
program and all the hours of work are which they put into their project.
Unfortunately, with software development this is the same as with cars
or anything. You only contact the manufacturer if something is broken.
It can disappoint if you only always hear bad things or at least nothing
good about your job. This also recently made one of our core developers in
ROCKLinux leave the project. I want to prevent this from happening
again.

Second thing is that software development and music are not natural
buddies, so most musicians using software in this field might not be
familiar with the 'usual' feedback channels ... at least not with free
software.

Well, let's hope this settles out, would be a nice thing for christmas
:)

Ciao
