Exactly because of this debate.

What should be KDE?

The thing that upstream ships as KDE?
The thing that Developer A and Developer B has agreed upon?
The thing that Developer C and Developer D has agreed upon?
Whan when users wants more?

If I was to define what should be installed, I would add:

kdebase-workspace (for the desktop
kdebase (for dolphin, konqueror and such)
kdepim (or at least most of it: kontact, kmail, korga, kaddressbook, akregator 
and kjots)
A few games (maybe kpat and kmines or so)
parts of kdenetwork (at least kopete)
parts of kdemultimedia (at least juk as media player and kmix and something 
for playing cd's)
At least ark, maybe other parts of kdeutils
Maybe a bit more.

But I know other people would disagree.
And shipping what we currently ship as kde-minimal would I very much like to 
not ship as "KDE", as it brings not the full kde experience.


How may I do for logging from the SIMM from Office 93?

You can never explore a button to save the periferic on a proxy.
