Umm, okay?

Did he give a timeline for this?

Couple of items:

a) It doesn't provide any listing of documents, nor any permissions
control which some groups within KDE need. We've hacked that on in a
limited fashion using special pad names.
b) It's based on Node.js (and comes with the associated maintenance hassle)
c) We're currently looking to de-duplicate and consolidate systems to
reduce maintenance hassle - eliminating Etherpad Lite for CODE in this
case is a fairly straight forward solution (we're supporting Nextcloud
anyway for other uses, and Etherpad has the downsides above to boot)
