    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    The place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.

    KDE 3.0
    Submitted by Anonymous on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 – 07:20
    KDE 3 is not in Debian. KDE will not be in sid itself until XFree86 4.2 is, but will be available for testing before then.
    If you don’t like this, don’t post abusively. The packager (not me now) has exams in 2 weeks. You can make your own KDE 3 debs and distribute them to the world. Either that, or you might want to consider actually paying the developer.

    Joy: Annoyance expressed in the above message is a trademark of The Debian Maintainers of Large Package Suites. 😉
    Just in case you wondered, DanielS posted this after reading two news submissions for the site that included a fair amount of swearing about not having KDE 3 packages. So if you’re just a normal user, please accept our apologies for making it sound as if you did something wrong.
    It is true that site editors shouldn’t be allowed to rant too much, and I can say that we will try to contain DanielS from further outbursts <shrug> And this article won’t be deleted because a bunch of trolls will then invade the other stories and blame us for censorship ;-p

    The right way is to have a packager that can say: “Hey I’m having exams can other one adopt kde packages for a while, please ?”. Not just jave us waiting and waiting and let us the only way we have to know what happen “TO ASK”, in debianplanet, in debian-kde list or whatever… and I dont like to see the same packagers who havent got time to package speding time to embarrassing the users because they ask… so, If you cant manage your time or at least let others to do your work when you can ( with the previus ask, two weeks before its right ) dont be a deb packager…
