I just had a look at KUserFeedback and I'm impressed.

Looks like a really good combination of very useful providers, UI, 
administration and server bits - all in one relatively small package. And for 
those not liking the PHP server part, it appears that that would be a piece 
that is relatively easy to replace - although the code looks very clean.


Also very cool that you're using this in production for GammaRay.


/That/ is something that would be awesome as part of the Qt project IMHO. 
Sensible scope, production tested and easy to use. (But I can totally 
understand that it might make more sense to remain in the KDE frameworks)

plugin in Qt Creator

Hi,

as numerous people have asked me to comment on this by now, let me just do
that here publicly (representing KDE's KUserFeedback, not KDAB):

Tino is well aware of KUserFeedback, we discussed that last year already in
detail. So it definitely was considered as a possible solution for this.
I do not know why it was ultimately decided to implement a new framework, in
particular if that's due to conceptual or technical reasons, or licensing.


With the KDAB hat back on, we do use KUserFeedback in GammaRay since mid last
year, and it has so far provided a few useful insights, in particular
regarding to what extend we still need to support ancient Qt versions. But as
with any data, it's not the ultimate answer to all questions, and you need to
be very careful how to interpret it obviously. We have so far not received any
negative feedback with e.g. privacy concerns, but the approach KUserFeedback
takes there by default (and that we followed in GammaRay) is intentionally
very restrained.

Regards,
Volker
