I'm tracking quite a few bugs now. Some are closed as fixed,
others are still there. It is a beta, and the major ones I've
seen have been addressed (Gwenview just not working at all).
If the next beta doesn't address the major bugs, poking
upstream (harder) may be necessary. As well as getting our
hands dirty to fix them and push them upstream if they're still
not addressed. Unfortunately, time always seems to be an issue,
both on our side of things as well as upstream's.
One thing that is sort of a bittersweet victory in 4.3 is the
automatic bug filing tool. Makes it easy to file, but creates
lots of duplicates and people still submit incomplete
backtraces. IMHO, it should only offer to submit if the
backtrace has 3 hearts (maybe 2, I've not seen how useful a 2
heart one yet) and it doesn't already exist (searching for
existing backtraces is in anaconda's reporter, maybe some work
could be done to get this into KDE's as well?). Some of these
bugs have a LONG list of duplicates being filed. At least 50 in
the Gwenview crash one. This wastes time, but it is better than
having no bugs filed.
