This is the first time that the revival of a project that has been archived
on has taken place, so we're in new territory.
The whole point of archival of these projects though is to allow for them
to be restored later on.

To proceed here, we first will need to get you a developer account - this
can be handled under the Incubator program, so you'll need everything that
goes along with that.

and would be consistent given the SDDM KCM lives there as well).
That will have to be done by a Sysadmin so please file a ticket once you
have a developer account. That will also allow us to facilitate catching up
the original KDE repository with the subsequent contributions that happened
in your repository.
