Re: [trinity-devel] Qt3 code analysis, qt-x11-3.3.8b source compared to trinitydesktop (svn)

Please i attached a README file with a few analysis of many patches i
found in others distributions and also network:

Perdon my english on first readme, the file well documented its the
changelog 3.3.8c but this not reflect patch work, the readme file
attached its a stub and pre file for documentation, the complete work
will be in the msktoo blog of netter's funtoo implementation (funtoo
its a geento author/creator linux but better implemented)

I now testing compiled versions and runtime performance, I think the
decision to  load a patched version of qt3 without analyzing the
applied/apply patches added and extra work load for the development of
the trinity desktop team, causing loss of time if I was already
examining the issue.

I've note that most Linux distributions do patches just to get out of
step, the developers of these distributions not provide something
really analyzed the library, while in debian patches are highly tested
and placed with care. (only two debian patches makes library take
debian specific, the rest is highly useful and distro independent!!!).

I propose that after finishing my tests compare my tarball (which will
be now tested) which exists in the repository. This is because as I
have analyzed, implemented and documented patches on the previous
version, work that are minimal and necessary for prevent build faille
or runtime errors in future!
