You might have missed while reading the message below that I actually *do*
*need* KDE3. If Daniel can provide it I'd be *very* happy since it'd save
me a lot of work/keeping up to date/trying to compile etc. As allways
coordination is a good thing, which is happening here in the person of DS.
And as allways many eyes do help finding bugs, fixing them, testing etc.
which will make sure that as soon as KDE3 is out it will be in releasable
shape on Debian as well not to mention possibly valuable bugreports
forwarded upstream. Otherwise it'll take another month or something until
all issues are fixed and "why is Debian allways so late on providing
software X while Susi Dakehat has shipped is in their alpha-bug 2000
version allready...").

Todo claro?
