I did join that mailing list. I didn't post, I think, even though I should 
be working hard on the next Krita fund raiser.

Coordinate yes -- but please, be aware that there are some very real 
constraints for a campaign that make it not a good idea to postpone it, in 
some cases. For instance, I cannot afford to postpone a Krita campaign 
if that means I can no longer pay for Dmitry...

On hte other hand, I think I've made good progress with getting Krita 
awareness out beyond the kde/free software/linux world, so it isn't that 
urgent, I think we can try and tie in links and mentions of KDE to a 
bigger extent in our next campaign.
