Another popular criticism of KDE3.5 for OpenSUSE is the lack of any
project infrastructure. Here at Trinity we are developing for the
future and the present. We have mailing lists, a bug tracker, a IRC
channel, a wiki, an etherpad, a website, a repository for our code...
the list goes on. At trinity we are not just maintaining KDE3.5, but
also improving and developing the platform to work with modern
GNU/Linux distributions while avoiding distro specific hacks and
