While I agree, doing more profilling would maybe be good. I will try to do
such testing in the future, at least on KDevplatform/KDevelop or similar sized
But As Andreas said, it stayed in the branch for weeks without *anyone* being
interested in it. Only a few users told me that they really like this branch,
that it works fine for them. So I trusted the, merged it and saw that it was
working quite nice. Then a few days later I noticed the slowdown during code
completion which was fixed ASAP by Ciprian, so nothing wrong there.
And I'd rather have new contributors doing good work (even if it's not
perfect) then no new things at all. And it's not like I merged this stuff
blindly, I did skim through the changes and didn't see anything obvious. I
mean hell, I don't even know what ADL is nor when it's applicable and when
not, I wouldn't have seen how to improve this case. We simply need people like
you in our project, who know Cpp really well *and* know their way around the
code base. And really, if it's just 8h of work, what's the problem? I spent
much more on some much less important features...
Anyways, this doesn't help at all and I don't see why I should defend myself
here. Who codes decides, and you sadly disappear for weeks sometimes and left
me no choice but to try to improve KDevelop in the best way possible that I
