Yes, I have a dark scheme for Kate that I'd like to add to the distribution.
Kate can't currently follow the settings, because of the amount of colors
I strongly support the idea of making a broader color scheme. Apart from kate,
other apps I use daily that needs many colors: kmail, ksirc (or any irc
In reply to scott: kate uses *at least* 10 different colors of text/background
to cover the default styles. It's kinda hard to calculate that many in a
foreseeable way i think.
