please note the following things:
- Daniel left kopete-development so I think it's a bit weird to see him 
speaking for the Kopete-team
- The second person leaving development actually wasn't involved very deeply 
into libkopete or protocol coding so it didn't really harm development
- Jabber-protocol has two developers, one currently got health problems though 
(rsi in both wrists, I guess everybody knows what that means)

Actually I can agree with the statement that Kopete probably won't make it 
into 3.2 (! that's my point of view, other Kopete devels don't think so!) but 
I doubt that the situation won't get any better until September.
We're currently trying hard to find new developers that have more time and 
better health and we're trying to get the inactive ones active again (let's 
see if Chris reads this *g*).
