Currently, most developers only have facilities to develop and test on one
platform, so it wouldn't be reasonable to insist that new applications and
modules in kdereview can already run properly on all platforms. Once they
have been moved into trunk, hopefully if developers on other platforms
have the time and inclination they will be tested on those platforms.
These checkboxes should be for information purposes only in the kdereview
