Hi Roberto,

Thank you very very very much for your contributions. You will remain a part 
of KDE because sooner or later you probably will have a look what's  going on 
and answer at least some mails and questions on irc :-)

We wish you and your girfriend a happy marriage and we hope that your kids 
will enjoy the Kinder Desktop Environment as well :-))

I guess someone from the promo people will change your information to Helio 
accordingly soon.

Good luck,

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
