My opinion is that is useless to keep Pairs while pushing GCompris.

We had many ideas for Pairs and with more or less effort we can deploy
them on GCompris, pushing Pairs forward could happen, but would also
be frustrating. I think it's a good thing that we unite and make teams
rather than splitting efforts.

This is the last feature/bugfix commit I found [1]. There was a
partial effort to port it by Marco but it never materialized. I
understand it's better to focus the few spare time Marco and I have
into improving GCompris, even if a little bit, rather than bodging a
Pairs port.

Regarding the release, I'd say it's fine if it is released with 15.04,
on the kde4 version, mostly because now it's too late to remove it
anyway. If there's important bug reports I can take care about them.

What do the rest think?

   Properly set the selection when an element or feature is added

   Also make sure that an element is expanded whenever the feature is added
