Oops, I overlooked the mail somehow. I was aware of the issue though. So the
thing is: if you already changed scripty, then merging back is the safer
variant. Otherwise 3.5.8's kde-i18n might create a more untranslated kdevelop
than with the branch.
I wonder why you guys don't ask forehand. Now all I could do is remove
kdevelop from kde-i18n and 3.5.8 completely ;(
But backmerge, I don't care. The idea in freezing KDE 3.5 was to keep people
on KDE4 development, if it doesn't work for kdevelop and the development team
is using dirty tricks to circumvent the freeze, I can't help.
