Re: [trinity-devel] Deprecate KOffice

I would have to agree with  Ilya Chernykh. While I do understand the
undertaking required to keep it, life has shown me, nothing worth
while, is ever easy. Becoming dependant on outside office suites,
which are now becoming fragmented (project fragmentation is FOSS's
kryptonite) is unwise.

I do use koffice, its has a lot of advantages OOo and its off shoots
don't. Too many to go into but avid users know.

Its something that needs to be considered patiently. Hast makes waste
and all that rot.

Thanks for listen (or reading rather)
