Hi all,

I want to be the new maintainer of kcmdhcpd/kcmbind i'v already send a request 
to Karl Backström the current maintainer.

Since KDE is almost never installed on servers these modules are pretty 
useless at the moment. My plan for fixing this are the following.

Since the incorporation of kio_fish in the base install of KDE i want to use 
the kio_fish to modify the modules so that they be able to read/write remote 
configuration files.

This will enable the modules to remotely administer dhcp and bind server 
without changing anything on the servers itself or install X and KDE.

Is there any program that uses kio_fish in this way already.
i'm looking for coding examples to use kio_fish to read and write files from 
within a program.

my TODO list for these modules

- enable remote read/write of config files
- enable multiple servers management
- redesign the parser
- redesign UI
- incorporation in kdebase/kdenetwork/kdeadmin when all these things are done.

Any comments/remarks/recommandations are welcome.

Simple things make people happy.
