Let me get this mail slightly back to the original thread topic (not that 
you're doing great work and you already started another thread but you'll see 
why in a minute),

IIRC I already wrote to a Thomas Friedrichsmeier and I'd like to invite you, 
Meik, as well (I still hope to bring Marko to Randa and he doesn't have an 
excuse if missing work or emails he does for KDE software on Mac anymore ;-) 
to Randa this August.

First to help porting Rkward to KDE Frameworks 5
Second to help porting it to Mac and other KDE software to Mac.
And third you get closer to the KDE community.

So don't hesitate if you've questions and otherwise find your way to 
http://sprints.kde.org/sprint/212 ;-).

Best regards and good night
