Just for the record, as I understand it, what this program does is to
let the user enter a number of heuristics, to generate a timetable
"Teacher A teaches course B at time C in class D
Teacher ..."

I think this would be rather useful for schools etc., but imho, this
program needs quite some UI work, a port to KDE instead of Qt, and of
course an active maintainer in order for being of value to KDE-Edu. 

Lalescu, could you tell us what your intentions are with this program
?  Do you intend to keep it Qt-only, do you intend to continue to work
on it ?

I must say I have no idea how good the application's algorithm is, I
once heard about how certain programs take days to calculate an
appropriate schedule, or am i saying non-sense here ? :)


You will get what you deserve.
