After reading this thread in full, I too understand Ivan's frustration with 
the situation that has arisen..

Ivan has put a lot of effort n to packaging KDE on Debian, and I think that 
many people (including myself) don't fully understand and respect the scope 
of his work. Judging from the number of packages orphaned yesterday, it was 
definitely no small task.

While I have not talked to Ivan very much, the few conversations we had in 
#debian-kde and on this mailing list were very friendly, and he was always 
helpful. Myself and many others have really enjoyed the frequent updates to 
the KDE packages in Sid and our sincerest thanks goes out to Ivan. I know 
that I am not just speaking for myself when I say that we will be sorry to 
see you go. Thank you for your hard work.
