The Trinity project is a project build on/for the kde3 desktop using qt3 libraries, mixing in a future the qt4 libs, actualy are working hard with moderate results, but considering all the efforts made respect their daily task, the results are actually satisfactory.
However, problems arise due they not listen to those who do not know much but if capch better. Currently after qt3 arrice to new svn repository; and apply (without any study of) a journey of patches to the qt3 svn repo (in the qt3 3.3.8b series based), errors occurred when trying to compile from svn, this is because they are not studied patches.
The patches must have study, the best its taking as starting point the great repository of Debian, obviously cos is the only distribution caring -> stability <--- not like Suse or Arch or Geento, that they prefer the lasted, without taking into the study of things that are made over software packages.
Currently for those who want a desktop with problems builds, would recommend to take as its starting point the debian project.
