If in the follow there are spelling/grammar issues, spare me please as I 
have only a limited education.


The PKGBUILD that I have done conform to the Arch linux packaging 
standards set by of course arch devs.

It is my opinion that if the scripts are not done in a manner as 
outlined in the package build document (on their site), the devs at arch 
linux will reject the pkgbuild scripts.  I would like to see them 
included in the arch linux extra or community package repos. So quality 
counts in my opinion.

The qt3 build you have does have some broken-ness to it as well.  I 
started with that PKGBUILD which led me down a path of horror.  With 
Laurent Dard help I was able to fix the broken-ness and I now have a 
solid build set.

Upon looking at the Arch build repo you don't have a full set.  It 
appears to me you are stuck at the autotool build packages as was I 
until Laurent help.   I now have the following complete and working qt3, 
tqtinterface, arts, dbus-tqt,  dbus-1-tqt, kdelibs, kdebase, 
kdebindings, kdeaccessibility, kdeutils, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, 
deadmin, kdeartwork, kdegames, kdetoys, kdeedu, kdegraphics, kdevelop, 
kdeaddons, kdewebdev, kdepim and kdesdk.  I need to do some cleanup work 
on my scripts and then I am on to the apps.
I know they are working and good as I use them on my desktop machine and 
even at the present state of trinity not being complete it satisfies my 
needs.  Even with the outstanding bugs in need of patches.  Good job to 
the trinity devs, Thank you.

I am also adding a mksource function so that I can pull from  the source 
git repo on  I also need to complete my work with 
qt3 so it will install and work along with qt4,  I have just a few files 
that are givin pacman a problem.  I think it will be a non issue.

I have planned out my repo to match the source repo by having three sub 
directories called dependencies desktop and applications.  I would like 
to see the trinity arch pkgbuild repo to move to something like that.  
The way the repo is now is very confusing to me.

Where are we going to start?

How many people are in the trinity arch linux developers/packagers?

What are the guide lines for the repo and how the pkgbuild scripts 
conform to ?

How to best incorporate my work into the repo?

The repo needs to be put in an order that makes sense so people that 
want to contribute can and all the 3.5.13  packages need to have 
PKGBUILD scripts.

I see your post as trying to start a dick size war so lets not do that 
and start being productive.  I take your post as counter productive.
Is this us against them here or what?

If you really don't want my help just say so, cancel my login to the git 
repo and I will go back to doing my own thing and putting my work on 
github, Just say so and I am gone.  It's really not that hard for me and 
it's all good for me.  I can help or I can leave it is up to you folks.

My work is presently here:
You can clone those and put them here if you like.
