Your ideas about visibility are 'healty', but given the state of the project, we rather not get too much attention. Once we feel we have solved some major problems which enable lots of other things, I guess we'd like to increase our visibility and create some awareness among the users.

Well, everything which is ~ppc-macos or ppc-macos keyworded has a chance of working. Everything else might also work, have a bug or just nobody before looked into it. Like Finn said, if you are interested in (parts of) KDE, you are encouraged to experiment yourself and find out how far you can get, and eventually report you efforts back to us via bugs and/or comments/questions on this list. -- Fabian Groffen Gentoo for Mac OS X -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
