I thought we *did* make it work. I think I did that myself, didn't I?
Instead of going to some bugzilla thing, it's supposed to generate a form
that encourages people to send a message to this list from the inside of a
dialog box. It was the best I could do, since I couldn't seem to turn it
Looking now, it does indeed seem to be broken. It says it's going to send to
this list, but then KDE's bug thing rejects it because we're not a real KDE
OK, KMidiMon has the same thing we have, and its Report Bug doesn't work
either. It's supposed to mail to Pedro directly, but it yields the same crap
message from somewhere.kde.org about an illegal whatever.
I think KDE is built around the idea that everybody will eventually want their
app to join the fold, and be part of the biggest package in the universe.
You know, thinking back, I had some exchange with someone at KDE over this,
and I was supposed to send them a patch to make all of this less
objectionable for those of us who never intend to move under the KDE
umbrella. Nothing ever came of it, obviously.
So, in short, I don't think we can fix it, and we can't get rid of it without
considerable effort. Or we couldn't umpty KDE versions ago anyway.
