Re: Debian and KDE


    as Maintainer of KDE for Debian I'd like to chime in.  kdelibs, kdesupport,
and kdoc all are sitting in incoming.  We had to wait till yesterday for qt2.2
to come out so that I could build it, then compile kde against it since
the GPL'd status doesn't mean squat if you build against the old libs which
aren't GPL'd. :)

This was all discussed on debian-devel and I was interviewed by a few online
mags....whether any of that went anywhere is not my problem.
