I've seen this "new" issue tracker, but I really don't understand. Why do we
need this? Have you ever tried sourceforge's one?
And why google's is better?
Last months I started moving rekonq from my personal site to sf. I couldn't
still move code to be served just in one support site.
Now we are having 1st KDE help. And having a kde official mailing list is an
important evidence that my (and now our) work is really appreciate.
So, I really don't understand because a so small project needs 3 support
sites. If there are no important and technical motivation (and I think no) I'd
like using just sf and dreaming to be hosted one day on KDE main servers.
About the release plan.. I'd like to release a new rekonq version ASAP. And I
think mainline/master code is a huge step forward 0.0.4 release. And it is
quite stable to use it as a lightweight browser.
So this has to be 0.1 release. I'm thinking about alpha/beta releases to just
fix bugs and improve translations.
Rekonq development model is based on (quite) short releases. From 0.1 to
0.infinite we'll have time to add ALL features we like ;)
I'm going to write two new mails about themes I anticipated on the morning.
