You can also check my spec file. Mine is actually called plain "gimp", so
you can either upgrade to it, or "rpm -ivh" it as no files conflict with
the stable gimp, although having "duplicate" packages other than kernels
doesn't make most dependency tools happy.

Why double efforts when they can be tripled? Uh, doesn't make sense?
Indeed, none whatsoever... I just started packaging it for myself a while
