My more immediate concern is that for a very long time now, konqueror users are still shown an english Debian homepage, which is really annoying. I'll _maybe_ try to find time to go through the konqueror sources and try to find where a simple patch could apply to correct this annoying behavior. Let's hope I'll find time ! ;) Don't worry : I won't stop reporting and contributing for and on bugs : what lacks is time and knowledge, not motivation ;) .
