Thank you very much Modestas for your work. If possible, could you please 
clarify in details which exactly help may people from outside Debian project 
provide to help speed-up the process of new KDE coming to official repos? I've 
read about copyright issues but unfortunately I'm not that deep in Debian 
"internals" and don't have any single idea of how exactly I can help.

Thanks in advance.
