No, he will start KDevelop3. There is no kdevelop4 shipped with kde 4.0,
the user has to fetch it from svn and he then has to accept that its
still alpha quality.

Well, then I can as well work on my local disk and commit to /trunk when
I have something that works.

No, I didn't mean a final version will need 2 months, I mean a version
that works as the one from 4 weeks ago plus the include-dir extraction. 

I actually considered doing the parser-rewrite in a separate branch, but
dropped it again because very few people were working on kdevelop and it
didn't seem worth the extra effort (2 kdevelop checkouts on my disk, 2
builds, one of those has to be done manually)


Is this really happening?
