the dolphin file manager is now in kde's svn in trunk/playground/utils ... peter penz has cmakified the build started porting to kde4. help out with the porting is welcome and then we can get crazy with the work on this file manager prototype for kde4. the legend himself, david faure, will be assisting with the framework bits building on the work he's already done on model-view'ing our file views. speed, consistency and beauty here we come!
btw, david loves it when your refer to him in person in superlative terms like "the legend". try it. and then give him a hug. he loves hugs too. totally.
i'm about to leave for the airport to attempt a trip to bangalore, india for the foss.in event. i'll be keynoting on the 25th and doing a hands-on workshop the next day. if everything goes well i'll be in my hotel somewhere in excess of 24 hours from now. i have a very tight connection flight gap in frankfurt which i'll make if the stars align and won't if they don't. wish me luck =)
i have news about that patch server thing i babbled about several months ago. it's pretty much there and ready to start deploying. but i'll save that for a blog entry when i'm not running out the door.
