Thread: Koffice progress on C++ ABI transision

  1. Koffice progress on C++ ABI transision

    Anybody any idea what is holding up the koffice transision. I have my updated
    KDE for a few weeks now, but I am still without kword (and others).
    Occassional messages to this list all have replies that express optimism for
    an answer that is now at least two weeks old.

    Anyone any idea where I can find more about whats happening to this. The
    developers list debian-qt-kde doesn't have any discussion at all (mostly
    automated messages)

    I have downloaded source packages for kubuntu from ftp.kde.org and
    recmopiled them without any problems (just fixing something in
    debian/control). Unfortunately, I cannot find neither .debs nor diff.gz on
    my computer -- I have probably removed them. But it should fairly easy to
    do it.

    As a rule of thumb, the more qualifiers there are before the name
    of a country, the more corrupt the rulers. A country called The
    Socialist People's Democratic Republic of X is probably the last
    place in the world you'd want to live.

    This may well be the case, but it still does not answer the question as to
    where the official packages are. Maybe the time has now come to say
    that the original request not to put in bugs against packages which have
    not been updated is now out of date and that we should start submitting
    bugs if that is the only way to get them through.

    I submitted all the necessary bugs a couple weeks ago (see [1]). With
    such big transitions, it's easier for us to deal if all bugs can be
    submitted in an homogeneous way (you get e.g. to tag them consistently),
    so the request for no submissions had to objectives: don't annoy diligent
    maintainers who take a week or two to upload their packages, and enable
    us to file them ourselves when the time comes.

  5. Problem: Saving an HTML email in Kmail

    I am using Kmail 1.8.2 within Kontact 1.1.2, KDE 3.4.2, on a Debian box

    I have finished writing an email in HTML with Kmail, and had it saved in drafts folder.
    Then, when open it from drafts folder again, all format is lost, now it is simply an ordinary plain-text one, and I have to re-edit it!

    Kmail seems to have similar behavior of losing format for all HTML drafts. Any body any idea about this stuff?

    Thank you very much!
