You keep going on the assumption that the maintainer of a piece of
software uses said software. In the case of KDE where they bundle nearly
20 separate apps in kdenetwork alone this is certainly not the case. I
have never used kmail. That said what I did was wrong and I understand
and accept that. However, saying it is easier to test for the bugs
existence than to close it is simply not true.
