I will give you credit there, but reading the mailing list is different from 
coming to the realization that no one *knows* when KDE will be completely in 
sid. It's sid, for christ's sake.

I understood it perfectly.

That may be, but that was not the case in my previous message.

Not really, just a little angry at the constant questions of "when will kde be 
in sid, my system is borked." The question is that no one knows the current 
situation very well, and the question we should be asking is whether someone 
needs to upload the packages in his presence. The status of KDE has been 
announced on this mailing list for weeks.

Now this is getting stupid and absurd. I won't even respond to such a

Maybe I jumped the gun on that comment, not knowing your true intentions, but 
I am a little discouraged with the same people who absolutely demand that 
packages be uploaded, especially when they are available elsewhere, into sid 
and expect a working system (remember, you said you'd just as well use Ralf 
Nolden's *complete* packages, right? Oh, of course you said that.)

Whoa! Who the hell said I make the rules for sid? Does that mean I'm an 
ub3r-l33t Debian developer as well?

That wasn't your original question.

Because I did know the answer. Not everything you're looking for, but not 
everything you're looking for exists.

Before we bore and frustrate the general audience, let's take this off-list. 
In fact, I don't feel like even making a flame war out of it to begin, so 
let's just not take it anywhere. Unless you want to. :)
