Hi dude,

Not sure whether this is the topic for kde-community, but here it goes... :)

We have had a chance to play around with IceScrum during the Plasma Active 
development. People weren't really satisfied with it. It was fun to drag the 
stickers around, but it was problematic from time to time.

(I'm hoping somebody will remember the actual issues we have had, since I 
don't :) )

IIRC, there is (was?) something in the works regarding this. I remember that a 
few systems were being tested half a year ago, with the intention to choose 
one for Plasma (as the guinea pig, and later other projects), but I haven't 
heard anything regarding that since.


So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
Because there's bugger all down here on earth.
