I guess you mean in-sufficiently here.

Any suggestions where to put or structure it? I'd gladly share the bits
I've learned the last days writing kdevelop rules, but I'm rather bad at
formatting that stuff (heading and bullet-lists is about all I can do).

Too bad its incomplete and has couple of question-marks. Especially for
anything outside of the core-modules. For extragear it says "lets figure
this out later, core modules are more important", for playground
everybody seems to be saying that the authors should do it themselves.

Which is fine, but then those people should be allowed to move anytime
they want as they don't seem to be seen as part of the "big move"

Don't you feel more like you do now than you did when you came in?
