To fix that we will just have to branch 3.5.13-2 to 3.6 and cherrypick tdehwlib, docbook and other fixes from R14. The renaming should have been limited to Help files, menu entries, about dialogs (just what the user sees) -- and only those core files that would collide with kde4 with TDE was installed in /opt and kde4 in user. The XDG/KDE3 environment took care of 99% of that to begin with. It appears that the renaming effort was somehow attempting remove all conflicts and rename all files so that TDE and kde4 could be installed and coexist side-by-side in /usr. Not only did renaming take a majority of development time for current code, but insured that every kde3 app a user might want to use on tde must now go though a renaming process of its own. I suspect R14 has probably had 50-80% of the development manhours dedicated to renaming, fixing problems related to renaming, or porting applications to work with the new names instead of functionality development. You alone probably have 2000+ hours on renaming. That in total is probably many thousands more, if not tens-of-thousands of hours in total that could have gone into functional improvements. We are where we are, but it is frustrating to hit Alt+F2 and type a command only to have the run dialog disappear without effect. A good part of that renaming could have probably been avoided. The good news is -- it is done. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
