Hi Sabine,

that is great news! What would you think about an article on
dot.kde.org to push this some more? Would you or someone else from
your team be up for an interview?

Promo peeps: Any takers? Would be awesome if one of you could prepare
a few questions for Sabine and write a short article for the dot.
