Graphics, User Interfaces "GIMP 2.8 has been talked about for more than a year and back in January there was a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December. That date has now passed and, sadly, this major update to this leading open-source graphics program is still not close to being released."

The way I see it there are two major reasons why even big projects (GIMP is not the only one) don't have many dedicated contributors.

1. Projects don't communicate what's happening to their user bases.

2. Users tend to take, not give.

The first one is now being addressed by GIMP team, the second is in the hands of community.
