Just a KDE users oppinion on this:

I didn´t have that question from reading the rest of the thread. (I know not everyone read it.)

I was quite surprised that on beta testing instructions in wiki the new FileMetadataWidget was mentioned after the release delay anouncement, cause I thought it was clear it wouldn´t go in.

Anyway, I think its clear that you are not responsible for this.

Now that it is in, I agree that it makes sense to fix any regressions
it may cause. And from what I read in this thread Vishesh agreed to take the responsibility to look after them should the widget go in.

Indeed does not make sense to blame anybody, but look at what can be improved in future.

Thanks for maintaining Dolphin,
