No, I can handle query.cgi just fine :)
BTW: if you leave out confirmed wishlist items, you end up with 1242. Which is
a number you can connect to 1000 much easier, no?

It's a goal, not a schedule. And you put the quotes around your interpretation not
my words.

Any reason why? I still think that KDE is in a state where features don't bring
us further, but all these little bugs and misfeatures are those that are missing to
perfection. So while a time based schedule makes sense as soon as you fixed
a good share of bugs, I don't want to see a KDE 3.2 that is released just because
some months passed.
