Even more: It looks like there are actually different questions depending on 
whether you reply as an individual or on behalf of an organization. Citizens 
only get questions regarding their own communication with public authorities.
Given that, I think it's even more important that someone replies on behalf of 
KDE, so that we can also provide input on the impact which the framework has 
on us as a n organization which produces software.
