So the right repo is tde3.5.13, not the one that will "destroy my cat", ok? ;)

Yes, got it. Now, I hope you will advice me, regarding the correct way to work 
with it. Should I make my own branch or track your suse branch or work on your 
branch locally than sending you the patches? Sorry if the question sounds 
stupid but I'm just a beginner with GIT.

Still, there are much more patches than I expected, expecially in core 
packages. Oh well, more patches, more glory. :) 
Something to start with: if I understand correctly "qt3-3.3.8d" is absolutely 
required, the qt3-3.3.8c maintained in the standard openSUSE repo won't do the  
job, right? Do you mind if I try to get a working package for it, as a start? 
The one on the OBS does not appear to build.

I have sent my account. :)


PS Oh, and BTW thank you all for your kind welcome. :)
