And it has still qt3support it was never port to qt4 pure.
Fedora helped us to port to qt4 pure and port to qt5 ? I didn't see patchs for 
So yep I removed it because I don't want to maintain another application.

But if you port to qt4 pure + qt5 + fix bugs ok we can speak about to 
reintegrate it.

I think that I closed a lot of bugs against kmail1 and kmail2.

But you can continue to support knodes/ktimertracker during age, it's not my 
problem now that KDE CI removed it.
(but I don"t see fix for knodes provided by fedora dev)
