It's the same developer making them that made the ones at kde.tdyc.
There's no evil empire, there's just a few random bugs (I remember 
a few bugs in the kde.tdyc one's, too.). The KDE debs are in the
same hands they were before; I don't believe anyone's forcing
Moore to break the packages.

Then don't start out with them. You've blamed Debian for the actions
of one developer at the same time you praised the actions of that
developer outside of Debian. You then went into a wild rant, claiming
that the cause of these "problems" was an "inflexible beuracratic empire"
(that managed to include KDE in a matter of what, a week?). You sounded
like some wild-eyed fanatic, not someone pointing out a real problem
and discussing solutions.
