But it requires some effort.

One more thing:

When clicking on an image file in Konqueror 4 (or Dolphin) I can no
longer get a full EXIF reading. That is also the case with Gwenview's
latest incarnation.

With the KDE 3 counterparts, I could and can easily get the EXIF reading
up by right clicking and choosing the appropriate dialog box area.

This loss of functionality has to be remedied!

Supposedly, it was planned to be in KDE4.2. My original bug report:

<URL:https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=403036>

was closed as an upstream issue and the following KDE bugs were cited:

<URL:http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=161848>
<URL:http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=164695>

This is why I've sworn off ever sending another bug report to Novell.
At lease not as long as Binner has any say there.

In the past any bugs that were indeed upstream would be forwarded by
novell, and held open by novell till solved and incorporated.

I agree completely. I bug cannot be closed until it is solved and it
is not solved by blaming/forwarding it to somebody else!

I have hard time understanding where I should report bugs or give
feedback. From my point of view, I'm using openSUSE. How should I know
when some part of openSUSE should be reported elsewhere. Yes, after
all these conversations, it is clear that KDE should probably be
reported elsewhere (there are hundreds of other packages...). But from
my point of view, I'm using openSUSE. I chose openSUSE (well actually
SuSE way back in 9.0 I think) - not KDE! I can get KDE from other
distros also. I expect openSUSE to care what I think about the distro.
I expect openSUSE devs to go the KDE devs and say that fix this or we
will have to drop the whole KDE from the distro as it does not meet
the high expectations of our users! That might actually make some
difference. Me saying that... no difference.

Also, most of the time, free form feedback here is also brushed of by
just saying: "go write a bug about it." Sometimes it is impossible to
write a bug about something. For example: Bug 123123: "I do not like
the direction openSUSE is going with KDE4." That, I think is the
sentiment of quite a few old SuSE users. However, as a bug report, it
would be discarded very fast and nobody would see it.
