I will make an attempt at slowly taking over from Michael.

He had already very kindly provided me with a wealth of valuable information 
that allows me to kickstart knowledge harvesting. Michael was also so kind as 
to promise to keep a careful eye on his baby, ready to provide insight and 
direction when needed.

I will be able to reserve about 10h/week for KDE work from now until October 
(afterwards, I will try to reserve more). The most of it will be directed to 
the kde printer technologies.

I will try to split this time about 2/3 for KDE4 porting/development and 1/3 
for bugfixing in KDE3.4/3.5.

(For KDE4, KPrinter needs quite a bit of work, as QPainter/QPaintDevice::cmd() 
got replaced -- somehow -- by QPaintDevice/QPaintEngine; this is quite a bit 
of reading/work)

You understand from the details above, that any help is more than welcome. If 
you feel like investigating bugs or helping with the porting, please step up. 
You could use the kdeprint at kde.org mailing list as a switchboard in the first 

Thank you for your attention
