Not on a technical level, no. But apparently the "design" behind the
rules file was thought to be different. Anyway as I said, it probably
won't affect us.

The last proposal I sent was:

 - kdevelop
 - kdevplatform
 - kdevelop-git
 - kdevelop-custom-buildsystem
 - ...

 - quanta
 - kdevelop-php(docs)
 - kdevelop-js
 - kdevelop-css

To separate web-development stuff a bit from the C++ ide. I didn't get
any further comments on that (if you want to comment, please do so in
the related thread (project layout on gitorious.org)).

Apart from that, having just 1 repo in a project is very common, many
projects have only 1 repo.

Actually that is still completely open. There's been 2 or 3 ideas how
kdereview-process will be handled but nothing definitive. Though it
seems most are in favour of kdereview becoming simply a wiki-page or
something. I'm not sure how importing a git repo including its history
as subdir of an existing repo, but I've seen a page suggesting its
possible somewhere.


Your best consolation is the hope that the things you failed to get weren't
really worth having.
