With all the talk and theorizing going on about Free Software development models, I thought that it might be a good idea to actually give an example. I've tried to keep it as accurate as possible, and hope my experiences working on this team can benefit other projects as well.
Like current GIMP development, this was not done alone. This is a compilation of knowledge from a lot of people on #gimp, some of it predating my own experience. This history would not have been possible without, specifically, the help of josh, Raph, Adrian, Xach, yosh, and more generally all of the guys on #gimp. This is NOT inclusive - there are many sites and people that continue to contribute to the success of GIMP that are not listed here. I suggest visiting [http://www.gimp.org/](//www.gimp.org/) for a more complete listing of gimp links.

Slug: corrupt-windows-installer-warnings
Summary: The Windows installer packages for GIMP 2.8.16 are reported as corrupt when downloaded with the Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer 11 browsers. This is due to a policy by Microsoft.
For the past few weeks, we have been receiving reports that some users can't download our [installer packages](//www.gimp.org/downloads/) for the Microsoft Windows platforms. Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 [mark them as corrupt](//social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/32288.windows-enforcement-of-authenticode-code-signing-and-timestamping.aspx#Signature_Verification_Failure_Experience) and discourage users from running them.

Turns out this is a policy change by Microsoft, gone into effect on January 1, 2016. The new policy affects all kinds of security certificates as of specific deadlines, and this includes code signing certificates. Jernej Simončič, who creates the Windows installer packages, signs them to make their authenticity verifiable. But the way this signature is done is no longer considered safe by Microsoft, and there are justified technical reasons for that.
Administrators and users of Microsoft Windows systems are well advised to make themselves familiar with the implications of this policy; the TechNet article on the subject is available at [Windows Enforcement of Authenticode Code Signing and Timestamping](//social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/32288.windows-enforcement-of-authenticode-code-signing-and-timestamping.aspx).

We are working to resolve the issue — this requires a more recent code-signing certificate and signing the installer packages with it. Stay tuned for updates.
