Hi Chris,

I just did an 
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install kde

on the Sid that had the error installing kde (the start of this thread), and it
still has the same unmet dependency problems.  

So: I read about dinstall here
dinstall can now announce packages & close bugs for you

Does your statement "This should be fixed in the dinstall today." explicitly
imply that that means when you (ccheney) do the dinstall that the packages
relevant to the fix get uploaded to the debian package pool, and thus become
available to Sid systems after they run apt-get update?  Or, does your
statement merely mean that the fix is installed in your own development system,
and that for it to be available to the rest of us it still must be uploaded by
you in a next step?

So: did you do the dinstall?
Is the fix now in the Sid package pool (and hence should have been available to
my system when I did apt-get update)?
If so - any idea why my Sid is still having this problem?
If not - when (in # of days) do you think Sid systems will be able to install
metapackage "kde"?
