(1957). If you folks want additional apps, I have a long list of KDE3 apps that could be added. I still have access to the sources and Slackware build scripts.

A challenge is many of these apps are useless and were useless when they were first introduced. Many now are useless because of obsolete dependencies, such as HAL and esound, or obsolete online URLs.

Then there are the usual problems discussed previously with help handbooks, incomplete *.desktop files, missing Help buttons, etc. There is a reason most of these apps never merged upstream into KDE: poor quality.

A bigger challenge with adding apps is we keep spreading ourselves thinner and thinner. At this moment the bug report backlog looks like this:

Blocker: 5
Critical: 7
Regressions: 18
Help Handbook: 20
stdout/stderr: 49

Basically these bug reports are ignored. "Not my itch" is a common theme in this project. Additional apps will not change anything. Who will support these new apps?

I would like to see us devote a few weeks to eliminating all of the above. Everybody would agree to stop scratching their own itches and would agree to help eliminate the above backlog.

The dev mail list stopped being a useful place to resolve bugs. That hasn't happened in about 18 months. Just file bug reports. Posting bugs to the list is like spitting into the wind.
