OpenBSD port proposition

From: Vadim Zhukov <persgray@...>

Hello all.

I'm currently working on porting fresh KDE 4 to OpenBSD (there were 
attempts earlier but without that much success) and currently seeking 
for the ways to make KDE 3 (which OpenBSD already have in ports, and 
it's working well) and upcoming KDE 4 co-exist.

Not so long (shame on me!) ago I was notified about the existence of 
Trinity Desktop. One of the main goals of Trinity, as I've seen, is the 
co-existence of KDE 3 and KDE 4 too. This way I became interested in 
porting Trinity to OpenBSD, replacing KDE 3.

So the question is: will you accept patches for OpenBSD? Some "desktop" 
projects turn Linux-only nowadays, and nobody want to constantly 
maintain all the patches that obviously will be needed for porting on a 
different O/S with different kernel and specifics.

 From my own side, I can help in porting to Qt4 and, of course, in 
making Trinity and KDE 4 build and run simultaneously.

Thanks in advance for your reply, and all the best to Trinity. :)

WBR, Vadim Zhukov
