Reporting upstream is not always easy. E.g. the KDE bug system knows nothing 
about kgpgcertmanager but a package of this name exists.
The only thing I found was:
http://bugs.kde.org/simple_search.cgi?id=kgpgcertmanager

The bug there is closed and kgpgcertmanager still _always_ crashes. So, it is 
not obvious if this is a packaging or upstream problem. Maybe you can tell, I 
cannot.

I would then have to file the bug upstream against kmail? kgpgcertmanager does 
not even depend on kmail. And now?

BTW: Is there any way to get the upstream maintainer email address or URL 
without downloading the source package?
