I think it was on core-devel that this discussion originally happened, but
this list seems more appropriate.
I just saw the "don't hold us accountable for the binary packages" statement
on kde.org, i.e.:
Please note that the KDE Project makes these packages available from the KDE
web site as a convenience to KDE users. The KDE Project is not responsible
for these packages as they are provided by third parties - typically, but not
always, the distributor of the relevant distribution - using tools,
compilers, library versions and quality assurance procedures over which the
KDE project has no control. If you cannot find a binary package for your OS,
or you are displeased with the quality of binary packages available for your
system, please read the KDE Binary Package Policy and/or contact your binary
package / OS vendor.
Could that be made more concise -- by tomorrow? Or at least could we get some
<b> tags in there for the most relevant parts? These guys are in a frenzy to
get to these packages at this point, I really doubt they're going to read all
of the above.
"Please note the the KDE Project does not produce these packages (or anything
but source packages), and is not responsible for their content." <link to
I'd be nice if people are actually reading the statement rather than
ceremoniously skipping over it EULA-style.

I mean, if 10 years from now, when you are doing something quick and dirty,
you suddenly visualize that I am looking over your shoulders and say to
yourself, "Dijkstra would not have liked this", well that would be enough
immortality for me.
