    Cue FunkStar in 5...4...3...2...1...

    He must have a really hard time with this one. He hates KDE, so he would hate any project joining KDE, so he could troll about that. But then again it is already a Qt project, which he also hates.

    Wonderful news, great thanks to those developing it!
    Now those low on memory have analogue of Claws Mail / Sypheed Claws, but for Qt. Really really good!

    Yeah, yet another project developed under the KDE umbrella.
    Once the developer looses interest, it will fit nice into the huge amount of unmaintained KDE apps, rotting around, consuming rescources required to maintain KDE's core functionality.

    If they are unmaintained, how are they consuming resources?

    And of course KDE is the only project with unmaintained apps. Do you know when the last fdupes commit was?

    Right. I've been maintaining it for only six years so far, so it makes complete sense to assume that it's going to be abandoned just now. Great deduction.

    Gmail, you know it's about mail.
    Hotmail, you know it's about mail.

    But Trojita? I doesn't sound like mail.

    Well, Trojita reminds me of Trojan horses which sometimes gets spread by mail.

    Outlook, you know its about mail
    Thunderbird, you know its about mail
    Evolution, you know its about mail
    Exchange, you know its about mail
    Pine, you know its about mail

    Oh wait...

    Well, lets look at Wikipedia's Comparison of Email Clients. It lists 50 clients. 11 of them have mail is an integral part of their name (so including, say, KMail, or WIndows Mail, but excluding, say, Eureka Email, which could just be called Eureka).

    if smtp and pop3 get supported will kmail then be replaced? kmail is one of those programs that mindlessly has K in front of it.

    Beside damaging the reputation of KDE, those unmaintained apps still cause headache for the bug hunting crews. Users will still complain anyway
    Unmaintained does not mean they don't need maintenance - as build breakage has to be fixed anyway - mostly by people not familiar with the codebase, lowering its quality even further.

    Look at all those apps beeing hosted and distributed by KDE, which do not even remotly do have something to do with a desktop environment (well, except they have a graphical user interface).

    And of course KDE is the only project with unmaintained apps.
    Not at all of course.
    I just don't get the need to move every project that is based on QT and has a few KDE hooks under the KDE umbrella.

    If beeing under the KDE umbrella doesn't mean anything (as you proposed with your first statement), whats the deal beeing under it?
    If it does mean something, projects probably it should be moved under it more carefully.
