In my opinion it would have been better for KDE3 as a whole if we could
have worked off the same codebase, but it seems that OpenSUSE has always
shipped a heavily modified version of KDE.  Not all users want those
changes, so it is probably better to have the two separate versions. 
Trinity is the equivalent of the old vanilla KDE, and has pulled in many
of the the non-SuSE specific patches from the SuSE RPMs, as well as other
sources.  SuSE is what it always was, and I can respect that.

I politely ask that this list remain focused for discussion about the
Trinity project itself, and that other projects that wish to remain
completely isolated from Trinity only be brought up on the trinity-devel
list in the context of GPL-released patches that can be applied to the
Trinity codebase.  If you or others would like to discuss OpenSUSE, please
do it on their dedicated list(s).

Thank you,
