Pfft. Debian developers are not under obligations to maintain contact on a 
daily basis, or even weekly basis. I have heard nothing but complaints from 
people who EXPECT that sid work unborkingly. If you're going to run sid, then 
expect that packages are delayed. The developers aren't being paid, and many 
need to hold a job (like everyone else) in the real world to survive. And if 
the simple answer, which WAS THE ONLY ANSWER, is that kdenetwork is being 
held up for an unknown reason, then accept that reason and either fix it or 
live with it.

And don't tell me your original post was not demanding, it certainly was.
