	Dan Williams from NM does not mind the long names:

	I will change them to match Qt's name convention: 
libQtModemManager.0.5.0 and libQtNetworkManager.0.9.0 for the libraries and 
/usr/include/{QtModemManager,QtNetworkManager} for the include directories. I 
already have the patches for that. If nobody says anything against this change 
I will push them tomorrow.

	Thanks Aaron Seigo and Thomas Zander for commenting on this issue and 
Ben Cooksley for moving the repositories to kdereview.
