I don’t know, that’s secret “Nicolas business”. :-)

Agreed, which is why I suggested git. :-)

I do have all the credentials since I had been committing to KMyMoney’s trunk in the past.

So, we’re at least two among MacPorts-based developers with direct KDE access. :)

I hope you’ll be able to get those KDE 4.13 ports installed using his current version of
kdelibs4 port. In that case it might also enable you to update the section entitled
	“Configure your KDE development environment”
in [1] if you want to enable someone else to use kdesrc-build instead of MacPorts’
KDE ports.
