Yes I use this myself so I won't simply abandon it. That said I work in
mostly in Unix world and could use help with the windows specific testing
although I should be able to setup a build envirionment to do basic
functionality testing. I'll have look at what needs done. Currently working
on getting merging in changes from Thomas as needed.  Just got through
bringing it up to date with Joachim's code. Real fun since it's still kde4.

So now that we have Joachim's blessing to use the name, the process is
basically outlined at
but it's basically importing the project into our git and then making sure
generally follows our rules & procedures.

I understand you want to continue maintaining the new kdiff3 and you are not
just "dumping it" into us, right?
