Hi Tom,

this is kdeutils coordinator writing :)

Hm. This is a move not described in the Application Life Cycle on Techbase, so 
it is not possible. Just kidding ;) We might need to add a section about such 
moves, then. I think all the conditions for moving into kdereview should be 
satisfied/rechecked, besides one can skip the review phase in kdereview and 
move directly.
	Manual in docbook format? Check.
	i18n? Check.
	Krazy reports? Hm, there are some issues*. So if you find some time...
But I see nothing grave which should stop a move.

I think so. And brings even more fame and usefulness to kdeutils.

Limits on supported platforms haven't been a showstopper for being part of 
kdeutils. Unless it is about the current main platform GNU/Linux, sure. Being 
open for patches which painlessly enable support for more platforms is 
expected, too.

He. At least the module coordinator/managing community should agree, no? Cmp. 
at least Techbase. Lucky you are, the coordinator agrees. :)

If you are moving RSIBreak to kdeutils, please subscribe to the kdeutils 
mailinglist** (also cc:ed), as it is the (low-volume) channel for module 
coordination, thanks.

So awaiting you in the hall of the brave kdeutils developers. If you need any 
help in the move, do not hesitate to ask me (ping time up to one day).
