After looking to the source tarball which is huge ( 600 Mo ), I see some pbs:

The issues we see that are blocking are :
we can't/won't package/add twice the same apps, one for TDE and one
for KDE and this issue is a blocker one.
I would prefer to see TDE in a external repository for now. ( i.e you
work locally to reenable qt3, package TDE, ... and then we can start
to review all this and talk about integration in mageia )
This will mess with menus too because users will have 2 times the
icons of K3b, and can lead to deps issues, files conflicts, how is
called K3b binary files ? k3b ? so it will conflict with "normal" k3b
and so on for the other apps.
For Robert Xu on opensuse this is a completly != issue as repos are
"seperated", but that would be nice to have a 3rd "external" repo for
