I could say pretty much the same about my commits to my apps.  In fact, my 
commits are infinitely less disruptive than Mr. Cullmann's:  Mine add two 
lines to the Credits page of four about boxes.  They affect not one bit 
the operation of any functionality, or even intrude on the use of the 
applications.  Mr. Cullmann's commit to kde-www is designed as a 
disruption of the service.

Rob is right.  This isn't about patents.  This is about KDE policy.  Is KDE 
going to have a policy of maintainer choice, a policy of political 
neutrality, or what?
