Get KidDraw in the KDE svn, otherwise I haven't been able to do very much (see

Hopefully be able to wrap up a first decent version within the 4.4 timeframe... 
though I expect it'll be 4.5.

Lack of time. With all the things going on in my life at the moment (family, 
university, work, hobby websites...) I hardly have time to spend on KDE. I 
follow the planet, keep myself up-to-date a bit and even managed to do some 
work a few weeks ago, but unfortunately that's also pretty much it.

Unfortunately KDE currently can't be my top priority, though I hope to be able 
to pick it up next year. For now though, I'm pretty disconnected from the KDE 
community, and I'm afraid that will be the case for another while.

QtXml (QDOM), QGraphicsView, QSvg, mainly, but that's not really KDE. KidDraw 
used to be Qt-only anyway, until last year. I do have plans to enable KidDraw 
for the Plasma desktop though (draw your own wallpaper! :D), but that's long-

Good luck putting everything together, I'm looking forward to the results!
