I never got word back on putting things in kde-mac's svn. I got tired of 
asking and waiting and having to juggle copies around because they weren't 
under version control, so I just stuck them up on github. It seemed like a 
good idea. For those people with git, they can easily switch back and forth. 
For those without, they can click the autogenerated tarball link on github.
