Kanagram now in kdereview

The idea of the kdereview module, as stated by thiago, is for translators to 
start working, documentation to be written, UI checked and the build is fixed 
for everyone.

With regard to Kanagram, the documentation is 95% finished, the UI stable and 
sane (along with the whole app being feature frozen), and I have not heard 
any reports of Kanagram not building.
Also, translators traditionally do the bulk of their work after the feature 
(and usually string freeze) so that their work is not obsoleted by new 

These facts mean that a short stay in kde-review for Kanagram is more than 
sufficient. Kanagram has been on the KDE 3.5 feature list for a long period 
of time now, with the aim of inclusion in 3.5.

The need of Kanagram to replace KMessedWords is great, with Kanagram being a 
highly enhanced application for the genre.

Not including Kanagram in kde-edu for the 3.5 release would be a great 
dis-service to our userbase, due to the myriad problems and unmaintainability 
of KMessedWords.

Therefore I must stress the case for swift inclusion in kde-edu, where the few 
remaining bugs can easily be fixed in time for the 3.5 release.
