We did have that discussion on how that scheme is not ideal?
a) you're right, but
b) if you install all of them, you get a lot more
than is sensible for a default desktop.
I remember the proposals to release more of the apps independently, and gather
a few of them together in order to form a "basic KDE desktop".
Like for example, have a kdegraphics module with Okular, Ligature,
KColorChooser and KPovModeller, and an extragear-graphics module with Digikam
and KPhotoAlbum, where only Okular, KColorChooser and Digikam would be
included in the basic desktop assembly.
Time to reconsider if it's a good idea to couple the timed KDE-wide module
releases with inclusion in the promoted "official" KDE. If only for K3b,
which is the clear winner by now ;)
Have a nice day!
oh wait, wrong line.
