TDE programming tutorial - may want to collect info, KDE is pulling the KDE3 tutorials

Tim, All,

  If we want to preserve the application building tutorials for TDE, we may want
to collect those that are applicable from before they are all removed. I
have found several instances where the examples are either gone or are labeled
to be removed. I've annotated the pages at for preservation, but in some
seeming "erase all reference to kde3" move, most are slated for deletion. (the
storage and bandwidth requirements for the tutorials are minuscule, so the need
to delete is somewhat confusing)

  As food for thought, between the kde3 tutorials at and the gtk
tutorials at, the gtk tutorial is laid out
much more logically and thoroughly. If we do preserve some of the tutorials for
TDE user/developer reference, my vote would be to follow the gtk lead concerning
depth of explanation and layout. (not the web format, the content level)

  Not priority, but I would be interested in what others think regarding
preserving/creating some developer information such as examples and tutorials to
show what is new/changed for TDE development verses KDE3 development. (T/Q
naming, etc..)
