If KOffice is not ready in time for Squeeze, is it the intention of the KDE team
to make KOffice packages available for Squeeze via Debian Backports as soon as
it is viable?
I'm more than ready to get rid of KDE 3.5, but in some way I'll have to keep
running it until KOffice is available for squeeze or until squeeze +1 (ugh).
