There are changes in there that might break things. Like removing the
encoding, are you sure that since KDE 3.4 all KDE versions assume utf-8
encoding of the files?

Is this used by khelpcenter? If so, does it still work with the changed
property? If its not khelpcenter, who uses this entry?

I guess this change was unintentional, right?

Same as above?

Note: I'm not saying the changes shouldn't be applied, but I'd like to
make sure they don't break anything (and I don't have time to test that
myself right now) as nobody's really working on KDevelop3 - so
personally I think we should keep the amount of changes to the codebase
small as none of us really keeps track of things there.


Someone is speaking well of you.
