Just want to say that this sounds like a good idea.

But I also disagree with the bit about not wanting to look for bugs but 
invent stuff. I've spent most of my time on kdevelop investigating not only 
bugs but problems people have in getting kdevelop to run. I know Walter's 
also done a tremendous amount of bug fixing as well.

The _really_ disheartening thing is after spending several hours helping 
someone fix something on their machine  they disappear back into the 
woodwork. I feel like I should advertise that I'm only willing to help if 
they do something for kdevelop in return. (sigh)

Still, every now and then someone comes along who actually _is_ helpful. 
That's you, Ralf Funken :-)

Happy New Millennium - Oh shit, 11:15 - gotta go :-)


Tell them to forget about the statusbar problems - that works well enough. 
Get them to fix the KHTMLSettings - On my screen the text is too small to 
read unless I'm 10cm from it :(
