I think that everybody who works on "core KDE" functionality
should be on this list because things discussed here often affect
~everything in KDE. But that's a different topic.

Hm okay, I guess most people are better than me at not messing up
CC lists. I generally just post to the list ;)

Okay. I'll wait until I have my mail problems sorted out (the line length
issues Ingo complained about are probably due to the GMail web interface)
and until Tokamak is over (I think you want to focus on big-picture stuff
currently, my timing was bad), so this is going to be in a few days.
Alternatively, if you think it's a good idea to bring this up during the
event, I'll go ahead and format my messages with kwrite or so ;)
