[KDE/Mac] So I think we should plan what we're going to do for the 4.1 release.

Awesome!  Sounds like a great idea.

I am indeed.  Of course, that's been interrupted by taking some vacation
the past couple of months and then losing all internet connectivity this
past week.  But, that just shows, I believe, that there needs to be more
people working on it.

Current status is that qt4-mac is currently set up in a
good default state for KDE.  CLucene has been updated to a new
enough version that will work with Strigi and Strigi has been packaged
as a port, submitted, and accepted.

The main thing I'm thinking about now is how to get everything else from
kdesupport packaged.  Once that is done, I believe we can start with kdelibs
and then rest of the kde packages.  I really don't think they'll be that hard
to do once everything else is packaged up.
