The last thing that I heard when I brought up this issue here was (from
Wichert Ackermann): KDE2.0? Unless you upload .debs with KDE2.0, we can
not "officially" decide whether it goes into debian or not. I expect such
.debs to be uploaded soon.

What has been suggested by debian to relicense every line of KDE code to a
special purpose GPL with an extra addition. Although this is advocated
to be a solution of the problem, it is only theoretical: It is completely
impossible to convince each and every author/contributor that once in his
life wrote a line of KDE code to change his license. So in that respect, no.

You may try: kde-licensing@kde.org
