Well, even if it is, the source tarballs are the only thing kde ships 
directly -- they rely on the various distributions to provide their own 
compatible binpkgs.  Thus, if it's a bug because due to compiling and 
installing from source, it's far more directly a kde bug than if it's due 
to some change the distribution made themselves.

So such from-source bugs very much belong on the kde lists, if anything 
does.  It could in fact be persuasively argued, were one to wish to, that 
it's the binary distribution folks who need to find the their own 
distribution lists to posts their bugs on.

But I think it rather better policy to say come-one, come-all, if it's a 
problem involving kde, post here, and we'll try to help.  Perhaps we can, 
perhaps we can't, but we'll try, which is after all the case with any 
such lists or forums one might post to, distribution, upstream DE, or 
upstream individual package, where such individual forums/lists exist.

So yeah, post the bugs, and we'll see what happens.  Several have said 
that, now.
