Thanks Elvis, Albert, Allen for your replies, also anyone who gave feedback on 
irc (and those possibly who tested and stayed silent as no issues were hit).

So 14 days will have passed upcoming Tuesday, and seems no showstoppers are 
left for leaving kdereview to become a "normal" repo.

Besides the fixing commits for the things commented on no other bigger changes 
happened since it entered kdereview, cmp.
kmarkdownwebview.git/log/ , but you might want to give it a final check.

So unless anyone objects, I will ask to have the repo in extragear, in repo 
hierarchy path extragear/utils.

Once it's moved and I pinged the translators, a week later should see first 
release then.
