As far as i can say I'm trying to learn more about kipi-plugins code (in my spare
time though) There are two plugins i'm looking through by now one of them is
cd archiving. I'm not able to take maintainership, at least not now, but I'm
trying to reproduce bugs and understand what i can do to solve them.

I believe this is a temporary time in which people is studying, we were near
to loose kipi-plugins at all. So be patience and if you can, try to help as you 
said. I believe any help is appreciated by all :)
