Perhaps some user feedback before I do that. The files are easy to browse right now:

Slackware 12.2 was the last Slackware release that supported KDE 3.5.10.

Considering the time span since these packages were released and unmaintained, I suspect many of the packages will need more work than just TQt3 conversion. A handful are still supported in KDE4 so we would need to find applicable patches to backport. Some of the apps probably are best not merging as separate apps but pulling good features into Trinity, such as kpager2.

If we create an R14-alpha branch then merging new apps belongs in the main trunk. My great concern is quality control, as I shared in my previous check list. Much like the very old Fram oil filter commercial years ago, these old apps mean we pay now or pay later with respect to bugs biting us in the backside. I rather we have a good quality control check list up front to minimize surprises later.
