Best to > move on. Yep, I agree totally. The big question is my mind is (1) time & (2) manpower constraints to implement its removal from tde. Every kde3 project that wants to move forward must be addressing this issue. While it might seem unmanageable for TDE to do it alone, or SuSE to do it alone, or whoever to do it alone, if we could somehow coordinate TDE, SuSE and whoever else (need to ID these) so that a common framework is chosen and the parts of the transition broken down into block 1, 2, 3, .... so that TDE does 1, suse does 2, and so on -- it starts to look a whole lot more doable. Why not have a central halfreetkde3-wiki or something similar that could host removal standards and server as a patch repository/hub.... Instead of having 10 different projects separately trying to do the same thing 10 different ways, it is far better to have 10 different projects contribute to doing 1 thing the same way.... -- David C.
