I didn't know about this one indeed.

Thanks for bringing it up. I had a bit of time to look into it, and it looks 
like audex is in a better state and it has seen some activity from Heiko in 
the last few months which kind of de facto makes him maintainer. ;-)

Since I'd rather we have one project with a team size > 1 that two with a team 
size of 1, I'll retract my previous offer of reviving kaudiocreator and turn 
my attention to audex instead. Hopefully we can get it out of playground and 
into KDE Applications.
