DistroWatch give Trinity Desktop money?

----------------------- News
September and October 2011 donations: Trinity Desktop
Environment, LibreCAD

 We are happy to announce that the recipient of the September 2011 donation is Trinity Desktop Environment, while the
October 2011 donation goes to LibreCAD. Each of the
two projects receives US$300 in cash.

 Trinity desktop environment is a community effort to maintain and
develop the KDE 3 series desktop environment: "This project aims to
keep the KDE 3.5 computing style alive, as well as polish off any
rough edges that were present as of KDE 3.5.10. Along the way, new
useful features will be added to keep the environment up-to-date.
Toward that end, significant new enhancements have already been made
in areas such as display control, network connectivity, user
authentication, and much more. This project is not an official
continuation of KDE 3.5 by KDE e.V., which will not be creating new
releases of the KDE 3 series. This is an independent fork using a
largely separate developer community." As it happened, last week saw
the release of a new version of Trinity Desktop Environment, version

Has anyone done anything other than complain about you or your project lately?
