Sometime try reading our patch list--it's right on the TDE homepage under

I must ask you officially to stop "representing" the Trinity project when
you are not (and have never been) authorized to do so.  You are apparently
doing great damage to this project and if it continues I will be forced to
publicly deal with your incorrect claims.

And what justifies such a version bump?

You "fixed" the HAL dependency by removing much of the functionality that
relied on HAL!  That is a terrible way to handle an open source project. 
What's next, removing the desktop entirely because it relies on Qt3?!?

You are making baseless accusations here.  Either stop this behaviour
immediately or I will ban you from these lists with a public explanation
of both your trolling behavior and the KDE:KDE3 repository's serious
