I also feel that for KDevelop we'd rather be taking a break this year. The 
last years with GCI have been reaaally exhaustive; managing a bunch of 
students who have looots of questions all day :)

And also, working on KDevelop tasks usually requires a very good understanding 
of Qt/C++ which is sometimes difficult to demand from 14-17 years olds.

And life's getting more busy over here, so I'm afraid we'll have to skip 
participating here.

*If* it's going to happen we'll try to come up with tasks, there's no pressure 
to participate from our side at least.
