You completely support what I write and suggest without noticing it :-)

I don't want Trinity to fork things like kpdf which evolved into Okular. I 
don't want Trinity to fork Gwenview which is much better in the current 
variant. I want Trinity to continue the work on the applications which got 
dropped or displaced (e.g. Kicker or KWorldView) to work on a future together 
instead of against each other.

I want that the users get the best possible software. In case that the KDE 
software is better (e.g. Okular) there should not be a fork of the inferior 
version.

Btw. a KDE version of kmahjongg [1] exists.

Oh and it would greatly help if everybody would calm down a little bit. 
Comparison to 3rd-World dictators should not happen on a mailing list. 
Surprised that KDE people don't like Trinity, if they get compared to 
dictators if they try to collaborate? Well I'm not. Btw. comparing a German 
person with dictators is the worst insult you could imagine for a German.

P.S. an apology for what you just wrote would be appropriate.
