Hi selk,

a few quick comments and ideas from my side.

Doesn't TDE already have Konqueror? Is that maybe suitable as a Web
browser? I guess there are probably some security issues with that, though.

Also, I like TDE, but is it really strictly necessary to have it
available and fully supported for -beta2? Wouldn't it be enough to offer
a browser to use with Xfce, maybe GNU Icecat?

Hm… If there would be any way to avoid removing that feature I'd be
really happy because I would definitely use it. I'd say that having to
remove packages I didn't want in the first place later is kind of
burdening me as a user.

What exactly makes it complicated to implement/keep this feature?

As you can see, I have made public the development branch for
implementing the almost fully automatic generation of the navigation
menu as an expandable tree today. There's a TODO file[1] in there
detailing what still needs to be done. I've split that into problems I'd
like to solve before merging it into the master branch and others which
can be solved after doing that. It's not strictly necessary to go by
that division, though.

As far as an FAQ goes, I'd say this: An FAQ should really only include
genuine frequently asked questions and not be used to communicate basic
facts about the project. There are, IMO, better ways to do that, one
being a technical overview page like Devuan and Adélie have it:

  * https://devuan.org/os/
  * https://www.adelielinux.org/about.html#overview

I already have some notes on what I think this could look like in the
case of Dragora.

Concerning the website, I think it would be a good idea to start by
refining the introductory text on the Home page. I have some notes on
that as well.

And, of course, we can add the release announcements for Qi.
