Someone is complaining we're not talking in private but keep things open on

kde-core-devel is _the_ mailing list where things are decided. But I would

Right. Handling directory creation will be difficult enough, handling

I will do that. It's just a svn update & rsync & cvs commit done every 10 
minutes ;)
