While we are discussing KDE/Gnome peace talks, I tried to think
of a suitably non-religious, relatively easy way to get some
"points on the board" for KDE and Gnome, showing the user communities
(whether they lean one way, the other, are ambidextrous, or are
trogs wanting both KDE and Gnome to fail) that there is progress.
Consider the KDE and Gnome documentation tools:
Both look at man pages
Both look at info pages
Both look at their "own" specific format.
Wouldn't it be nice if the gnome-help-browser could search and
display KDE documentation, and vice-versa?
And just imagine if the help browsers from both systems are
released as "ecumenical versions" (as far as the data they can
read) in a joint announcement of kde and gnome.
The other thing worth talking to the KDE folks about is their
experience dealing with Qt1->2 and KDE1->2 hassles. I think
anything they say about this would be useful as we get closer
to Gnome 1->2 migration time.
