This comes from discussion at UDS where we weren't sure why you had
disabled krunner on kubuntu netbook.  If it does save significant
login time that's all good.

This comes from Kolab Sys going to trade shows and saying "if you have
problems with akonadi and mysql that's because they haven't chosen
sqlite".  It's nonsense as I and you have discovered so we'll stick
with mysql.

This is done but of course a final decision is yet to be made.

There's limited space in the work items lines for a full explanation,
that's the disadvantage of the work item system over the full written
spec system.  So if you don't understand anything do ask.

There's nothing wrong with having a research item as a work item, it
still takes time to look into and decide what to do.
