Even if I see well my colors, the color difference is not 100% evident to me, but with the italic text, it is more visible. Also, if the user is noodle enough to not know that it is a link, then too bad for him... But it is not such a big matter in the end...

Also, can you replace the TDE logo with a well resized one, to avoid blur?

Thank you!

Bugszilla to main TDE homepage missing link

 From the bugszilla page it is not possible to go directly to the TDE website.
A link would be good.
Perhaps a solution would be to make the TDE Icon on the top left part of the banner clickable as in many other
pages of 
the new website.

TDE site glitch on iOS

Hi E. Liddell,

Not sure if there's anything you can do about this but I was browsing the
TDE site on iOS and got the attached glitch.

Is there any way to force the horizontal scrollbar to show up in this case
instead of overlaying the left hand menu bar on top of the text?  This is
one of the very few cases where horizontal scrolling is preferable to what
we have now.

new website - patches

Hi guys,

It would be really cool to drop a 'smart' table into the patches page, or have an alternative page that provided that support. Datatables is a great example of this. It's a pseudo excel style table, backed by some javascript. it would make it easy to search through commits, export data to excel, sort of date, etc.

Just a thought,

I think you've hit on the problem, which I feared - automake does not install 
icons as intended, but automatically adds extra subfolder. If you look at the 
rest of the commit e12d7923 see that program refers to the icon 'system-run'. 
This will require an adjustment in the common 'admin' module => rebuild 
everything again.

IMO: On TDevelop not depend on any other packages, so it's no problem, if it 
moves backward in the build queue on build-farm. Therefore, I see no problem 
to push patches now.

Tim has in the queue a patch for tdelibs in connection with missing icons - 
see renaming icons and 'categories'. I suppose if it will push, it will be 
also opportune moment for your patch for tdelibs.

I thougt I would mention this in case it was useful for your development process

How many times you have been hit by unit tests failing because of
environment differences between you and other team members? How easy
is it to build your project and have it ready for development? Vagrant
provides a method for creating repeatable development environments
across a range of operating systems for solving these problems. It is
a thin layer that sits on top of existing technologies that allows
people working on a project to reproduce development environments with
a single command.

Contributor License Agreements


After much consideration I have decided it would be safest to require our
developers to formalize their open-source contributions with a CLA.

The CLA on the main TDE site does not transfer copyright or do anything
objectionable like Canonical's old CLA did; it simply formalizes the
long-standing intuitive agreement between open-source contributors and
open-source projects.  Specifically, contributors grant a license to use,
redistribute, modify, etc. the contributed work under our approved
open-source licenses (sadly this formalization is required even though
most people would think contributing to an open source project
automatically granted those rights!), waive any patent rights they may
otherwise hold for the contribution (some people contribute then sue for
high damages), etc.  Fairly standard stuff but in the increasingly
litigious environment of the United States the risks are just too high to
continue without a CLA.

I have not arrived at this decision lightly, but have tried to keep the
CLA as minimal as possible while protecting the project.  I don't believe
the CLA grants any further rights to the project than already intuitively
granted when people contribute to an open source project; if I am in error
please let me know ASAP!

Until I get feedback from the core team this is not mandatory for anyone
who has already contributed to the project.  Above all I do not want to
alienate the core development team without whom this project would not be

The agreements (and rationale) are available here:

Thank you for your consideration,

TDevelop patches to be pushed

I would like to push the attached patch to the tde-packaging repo. It 
adds debug symbols to TDevelop.
At the same time I could also push some TDevelop documentation updates 
that I have already made.
Can I go ahead?
