Re: That's a problem with KDE

From my experience, the KDE team is primarily one-off developers that aren't dedicated to the project itself, but are avid users of KDE, so they'll scribble up a code patch, submit it, and it ends up in the tree. Since their code works well enough, the core developers end up ignoring the edge-case bugs and instead focus on the highly-visible bugs or working on features.

Not saying that it is only the KDE project that suffers from this, its becoming quite prevalent across pretty much all software projects, both Open and closed.
