Actually, kdepim 4.4.x did not stop being developed when the rest of the
development for KDE SC 4.4.x ceased -- kdepim 4.4.10 was released just a
few days ago, for example (and is likely to be the last 4.4.x release).
The idea is/was to keep working and releasing 4.4.x while 4.5.x (which
later became 4.6.x) was still a WIP.

It's usually a problem on both sides -- application maintainers should
not automatically reject bug reports based on the operating system, OTOH
a lot of FreeBSD-related bug reports have useless backtraces because
people don't compile with WITH_DEBUG=1.
I try to help whenever I can. You can CC me on the bug report if you
want, but the kdepim guys are nice folks and probably won't discard your
report anyway :)
