My previous request was in the middle of another post, so maybe did not get
noticed.  I have today started a new thread on macports-users at lists.macosforge.org
"Please edit Macport's KDE instructions" with details about the current state of
play re the KDE Mac web pages and references to the threads on kde-mac at kde.org
so here's hoping ...

Thanks very much for all your good work on community.kde.org, John.  I am sure
it will be much appreciated.

All the best, Ian W.
