The way Bob wrote his plea for help it looks like Renato believed Bob is a
developer. Github is over my head, and over Bob's, useful only to developers
AFAICT. Bob is just a non-developer user who desperately needs for KMag to
work correctly in either KDE4 or KDE3 (or both), like it used to do in KDE3
in openSUSE 11.3 and prior.
