They all switch because the plan for KDE 3.0 is to release in January. The
switch to Qt 3 will be in 3 weeks (first week of september). See Dirk
Müller's mail on KDE 3.0 at lists.kde.org or kde-core-devel. Qt 3 isn't that
revolutionary IMHO. That justifies the switch of us, too. Otherwise we'll run
into trouble for many things:
-the source incompatibility isn't estimated as far as it affects us yet
-we will have to do the porting later which says we're using API methods
which are away probably later
-we're using admin to work at the autoconf/automake level which will switch
the check to Qt 3
Given that and the fact that the source incompatibility mostly affects the
kde styles and that the extended API of Qt 3 is easier to use and we save
time by switching right away instead of later, I think that are very valid
reasons. See my other reply to Sandy.
