Just to clarify, if you see a potential problem with the project please
feel free to bring it up on this list.  What has really struck a raw nerve
here is the promotion of the apparently dead-end KDE:KDE3 as a real world
alternative to the Trinity desktop project, combined with the
rejection/criticism of our ideas with absolutely no alternatives presented
or suggestions made.

Most FOSS projects establish their leadership based on who has contributed
the most towards advancing the goals of the project.  We are aiming to be
somewhat different by listening to our users and adjusting our plans
accordingly, but please realize that all of us are working on this project
for free in our spare time, and therefore may still have different
priorities than yours.  If you really want to see something done, as in
all FOSS projects, the best way is to do it yourself, or pay someone to do
it for you.

I hope this clarifies things a bit, and I hope that this thread, which has
long outlived its useful purpose, can now be put to rest.
