You shouldn't be. I'll make a point to file all bugs there now. Recall after
11.0 and the forcing of the 'KDE 4.0.4 "Release"' on opensuse as a default,
all KDE3 bugs filed thereafter were automatically closed as "Wont' Fix".
That's when I quit filing them with opensuse -- after about the 5th one, then
tried kde4 and wrote over 200 bugs against it, then went back to KDE3 because
I couldn't spend an hour a day, every day, tracking down why things didn't
work in kde4. (I did the same against Plasma/Frameworks 5)

If the opensuse bugzilla will take kde3 bugs, I'll file them there. As I've
expressed a number of times, the patched KDE 3.5.10 that we have here has been
rock solid and avoids the renaming complexities and separate tqtinterface
interface layer incorporated into TDE. (it also lacks about 5 years of solid
bug fixes TDE has had on the downside). However, other than a simple td...
kd... rename, all the TDE bug fixes can be dropped directly into our KDE as
patches. So if you find a TDE bug fix you like, lets just incorporate it as a
patch here.

I guess we should set up a build environment. I haven't tried here, but the
build order should be ascertainable for the .spec files and the original 3.5.10 source tree.
