I would like to see several packages to be moved from contrib to 2009.
Most of below mentioned ones are not mine, but they are valuable. I
would like to know your opinion - generally or particularly. Please
add more packages if you think they should be also moved. Paths are
relative to contrib/devel.
fast and simple text editor with highlighting (Qt4 + QScintilla), I
use it daily
fast console text editor resembling emacs (ncurses), I use it daily.
very valuable file manager (KDE4), stable. 2009 version ready at
all current KDE4 packages could go 2009, couldn't they? Has some
extra dependencies in contrib, though.
in my opinion there should be at least one "lightweight" window
manager in 2009. Valuable for heavy development on older machines.
Though I'd preffer the component to be renamed to desktop/lightweight
as there could come more (openbox, icewm, ...)
your last hope to save data from failing disk
very good Qt4 mplayer frontend. I know there is KMplayer, but ...
the only Qt4 jabber client I know which is able to connect through http proxy
nice downloader (Qt4)
Qt4 webkit web browser
molecular editor, very nice. The package seems unmaintained, I'll
speecdrunch replaced kcalc in kubuntu
best long-time archiver I've ever used. Incremental backups, per
file compression, encryption. Windows version available too.
