How's the history of Bluecurve relevant for the state of KDE in current
Fedora? Bluecurve isn't even the default anywhere in Fedora anymore! And
the state of KDE has changed a lot between RHL 8 and now. In particular,
KDE is now maintained by a community SIG (also including 3 RH folks), not
by a single person at RH. And the decisions are now taken by the SIG, not
RH. The RH employees work with our SIG the same way we volunteers do, they
don't get instructions dictated from above. And FWIW I still use Bluecurve,
I even ported it to KDE 4 (see Quarticurve) and I don't see what's wrong
with it.
