from http://techbase.kde.org/Schedules/KDE4/4.0_Module_Status#Module_Status I 
read there is no Release Maintainer for kdeutils. So who decides/cares there? 
I guess this list, then.

With KHexEdit currently there is a tricky situation. Under kdeutils/khexedit 
live two separate projects, the program KHexEdit and the binary editor plugin 
(see the subdirs core, gui, parts), project name Okteta*.  I personally only 
care for Okteta, but not for the program (see footnote why). 

Right now KHexEdit is roughly ported and runs, but is not fully functional 
(painting draws outside of PaintEvent, view tabs running wild and crash the 
program, html/rtf export not working). So not really in release state (yet).
Two solutions:
1. Exclude from release and hope for me getting Okteta ready for the next one.
2. Search maintainer and fix KHexEdit.

I favour #1 (one program to rule things, no conflicts ;) But I understand 
those who like #2 more, just tell me what you think.
In case most like #2 more I would blog and mail a maintainer query to Danny 
for inclusion in the digest.


* Both projects share no code, as the plugin was written from scratch. Instead 
of modifying KHexEdit to make use of the libs, I decided to write a program 
also from scratch, using the libs. I am only halfway done, see 
playground/utils/okteta. Bookmarks, Undo, and embedded search dialog are 
still missing to match KHexEdit's features, but else looks good.
