Slackware is well known for modifying upstream sources as little as possible. With respect to KDE3, Slackware provided those packages as provided from the upstream KDE repositories.

With that said, the Samba options discussed are part of the Slackware 3.5.10. Therefore I presume those options were part of the upstream KDE repository. If those options are not available in a particular distro's 3.5.10, then I presume the options were stripped from the upstream KDE sources.

The Desktop Text options never were part of Slackware's 3.5.10. Likewise with the Multimedia/Music Manager. Therefore I presume they were added by various distro maintainers and were not part of the original KDE sources. I would like to see these latter two options added to Trinity's kcontrol.
