Hi Lydia,

As you know kdeprint was removed in KDE4, and the former maintainers are no 
longer active developers.  If there are any 'orphan' e-mail addresses for 
kdeprint related stuff, you can send them all to the old kde-print-
devel at mailing list which I monitor.

The kdeprint product and its components kdeprint, kdeprintfax, and kjobviewer 
need to be closed for new bugs.  At the moment, I'm assigning all KDE4 print 
dialog related bugs to kdelibs/qt for investigation before sending them 
upstream, but I wonder if we need a simple kdelibs/print-dialog component so 
it's easy for people to find?

Finally, a lot of the Localisation related stuff used to be maintained by Hans 
Petter Bieker <bieker at>, but I don't think he's been active for a long 
time.  I've slowly been taking over a number of his bugs for the stuff I work 
on (KCalendarSystem, bits of KLocale, etc), if there's any products or 
components he's default for and gives up/doesn't respond I'd consider taking 
them on.
