I recommend seeing this message:

I do it for Fedora, and partially for openSUSE with the KDE:KDE3 maintainer.
I was going to do some for Mandriva, but I've got a lot on my hands
and not a lot of experience with Mandriva/Mageia macros and that
stuff, so I can help, but someone else has to maintain the spec ;)

(PM me for more info on packaging Trinity, including write access to
the trinity's SVN for packaging)

Sadly, no. The real goal of 3.5.13 at the moment is porting to cmake,
which is a long and tedious process.
If anyone knew cmake well, i'm sure we could speed up the process dramatically.

3.5.14 and 3.5.15 will bring the depreciation of hal and the migration
to qt4, respectively (AFAIK)

later, Robert Xu
