Thanks for answering. I'll try to get my hands dirty on a Techbase page, which 
would have more visibility, I'd say.

One of the issues I see on the PyQt part at the moment is not on the C++ side 
but on the Python side: pykdeuic4 and related tools use (rather undocumented) 
parts of PyQt (qtproxies, anyone?) and they tend to break when they change.

Is there any predefined KDE configuration you use? Again, stuff that could be 
put in git/svn to make things easier to spot.

Does twine have problems with multiple inheritance? Although I do not speak 
C++ at all (well I'm learning but snails have a faster pace ;) I recently 
fixed a bug where one of the Phonon classes had the wrong inheritance and this 
could not be used in Python.

Now that you've explained all of this, I'd like to push forward my plan for 
PyKDE, which mostly touches the Python stuff.
I don't have a lot of time on my hands but what I'd like to do is:

- Clean up examples (remove references to "pykdedocs", convert to new style 
- Move examples to kdeexamples, as they are more suited there
- Write more tutorials: I have a few on my blog currently which handle KIO and 
KConfigXT and I hope to do more in the future so that people might work better 
with PyKDE4.

If there are suggestions for the non-C++ part, I'm happy to hear them.
