Specifically, how are you providing Qt4 compatibility?  How are you
improving KOffice to properly read and write standard .ods/.odt file
formats?  Have you fixed any of the couple hundred bugs on the Trinity
bugtracker?  All I see you doing is packaging other people's source and
patching minor compilation issues, without reporting the patches upstream
via the bugtracker.

There is nothing wrong with having two different positions here--the
Trinity project is a FOSS project, tasked with new development, general
maintenance, bug control, and project direction management (that includes
deciding what is part of the project and what is not), and you are a
distribution packager/maintainer, tasked with making upstream FOSS
projects work properly on your distribution.  Am I incorrect?
