Well, because the trinity people work inside KDE's svn infrastructure, I see their commits pass by. I see that they're doing some kind of abstraction layer thingy so they can compile with Qt4 and Qt3 and I know they are porting the old KOffice 1.6 codebase to it, so they're also taking care of the apps.

They also very decently renamed Krita in the old KOffice application set to something else when I asked them to, since no matter how you slice it, Krita 2.4 is much, much, much faster, more powerful and more useful than Krita 1.6 and I didn't want users to get confused.
