So far it is no problem at all because trunk and 1.6 are still basically 
identical. But I wonder how we should do the porting to trunk once trunk 
depends on Qt4/kdelibs4. I don't think I have time to compile Qt4/kdelibs4 
all the time. Furthermore, as far as I understand, it is basically not 
possible right now to run kde3/kde4 apps at the same time. Which might make 
porting bug fixes/features to trunk and especially testing really tedious.

But maybe I am totally wrong here. In case someone has experience with kde4 
development, it would be nice if he/she can correct me. It would also be 
quite nice if someone with kde4 development experience can set up a wiki with 
instructions how to compile kdelibs4 and how to use CMake (trunk seems to 
already use CMake), and how to use kde3/kde4 apps together so that we can 
easily try out patches against trunk once it depends on Qt4/kdelibs4.
