Not sure, but I wonder if Alex means he wasn't logged in so powerdevil 
couldn't work?

It seems quite fashionable to start a project on freedesktop.org without 
involving KDE and to build it using Gnome tech, then ask us to use it because 
"it's a cross-desktop project".  How are they supposed to know what our 
requirements are without asking us?  What are the criteria for getting fd.o 
hosting/blessing these days?

Note I don't know if this is the case for this project, I haven't heard 
anything about it before, but I may not be on the right lists.  Enlightenment 
gratefully received.
