FYI, I forwarded the naming scheme message to the Kubuntu Developers list for comment (since Kubuntu will follow Debian's lead on this). I'll forward any other replies I get too.
Scott K ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- Subject: Re: Naming scheme for KDE Configuration Modules Date: Tuesday 02 February 2010 From: Celeste Lyn Paul <cele...@kde.org> To: Kubuntu Developer Discussion <kubuntu-de...@lists.ubuntu.com> Option D kde-config-*. KCM is a description of the technical implementation and not a description of the purpose of system settings. If a new module framework was developed, the concept of kcm could become obsolete. D would also work well with standalone modules outside the shell. On Tue, Feb 2, 2010 at 11:34 AM, Scott Kitterman <ubu...@kitterman.com> wrote: > FYI.
