Hi Andrea, welcome to Trinity!

There are a lot of projects that I have on the OBS, but half of them
are unmaintained, so don't go by them ;)

I've been working on getting much of my work up to speed and working
again after my dev machine crashed. I thought that I would be able to
retrieve a lot of my work, but that didn't happen as much as I thought
to plan >_>;;.

I made a branch on the Trinity Desktop tde-packaging git, you can
check it out on the suse branch. I'll be updating it as I get to
There are handy macros if you want to help :) I've been taking them
from the KDE:KDE3 repo and restructuring the packages, removing
old/obsoleted patches and other cruft.

I upload them from the GIT to the OBS when I have time. If you need me
to upload anything for building, feel free to ask :) (osc build is a
good option though >_>)
