hi Chris,

here are my 2c about this:

 - the main reason why there is no 'qterminal' in lxqt/razor/whatever DE repo is - I want to make it as a multi-platform application. I use it on X11 *and* OS X. So, for me, is not acceptable to bind it to any "DE framework" etc. *The ability to be used on any (unix-like) platform is the showstopper for me.*

 - in old "razor-qt" times almost all razor developers used qterminal and they provided patches or feedback. Also we made qterminal to fit the DE look and feel etc.

 - I'm really open to accept patches including patches with quite big changes. For example the 'yakuake mode' - I accepted it without problems even I find it quite useless feature (for me of course).

 - definitely, I cannot do anything against your 'right to fork' ;) but I'd like to see more cooperation instead of forking. But it's up to you of course. No prob for me in any way.

 - for some weeks I plan to release another milestone of qtermwidget/qterminal to refresh packages etc. Just to have free time.

 - FYI: 'qterm' name is already take (unfortunately) by another SW (a BBS client)

cheers and thanks for interest,

P.S.: I'm subscribing to lxde mailing list right now.
