Note: kdiff3 right now is hosted & developed on SourceForge.

I'd love to see kdiff3 being adopted by KDE again (it former was KDE extragear 
if I understood correctly). kdiff3 is a super useful tool -- and right now 
development has stalled a bit.

Talked to Joachim (the original author) a few weeks ago, where he stated he 
just doesn't have the time maintaining it anymore, really. I've CC'd Joachim 
so he can tell us whether he's okay with having kdiff3 developed further under 
the KDE umbrella.

I don't really know the process of having it integrated either. I'll leave 
that to others.

Kudos for doing the KF5 port!
