Not boring at all, on the contrary. We'll have a meeting in 2010 (Mario who 
organized the Plasma one is trying to see if he can get us in Switzerland, as 
soon as there is something precise he'll mail the list) and if we could get 
some promo (and website) people that wouldbe awesome.
I agree with your view. When I said we could detach from KDE like KOffice that 
was more as a marketing and promotion strategy than as a development one: we 
could still release with KDE and we must do so in fact (just as KDevelop does 
We need to think about communication and your thoughts are good: we need to 
clarify the vision.
Let's see if we can arrange an IRC meeting as proposed by Nightrose (thanks)
