You shouldn't be. I'll make a point to file all bugs there now.
If the opensuse bugzilla will take kde3 bugs, I'll file them there.
In the past 60 months I filed 8 bugs against KDE3. 2 have status resolved. The
other 6 remain open:

Total KDE3 filed in past 60 months is 37, including 5 duplicates. Total open is
12 (4 of which for out of support releases):

965242 I've not seen in a while, so I suppose that's been fixed somehow.

Ilya left quite some time ago, probably over a year, yet he's still the default
assignee, and no one seems to be triaging or otherwise tending any of them
except maybe by accident.

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.
By my count, TDE has more open bugs on openSUSE than KDE3 has, and nothing I
know of has been "fixed" on TDE that is open on KDE3. KTTSMgr does not work as
installed in either one, and removable media problems are worse in TDE than in

A glaring omission in KDE3 that TDE has is for GTK3 app styles. GTK2 will soon
be history. There is currently no open bug for this need.

TDE is probably as a practical matter unusable for many if not most openSUSE
(and Debian Stretch) users due to $SUBJECT.
