FWIW, this one is the gmane.comp.kde.general newsgroup to me, with the 
other one being gmane.comp.kde.linux. =:^)

But the lists behind the groups are simply kde, and kde-linux.  As I 
understand the descriptions, kde-linux would be for Linux specific kde 
questions, while kde (aka kde.general) assumes more general, not Linux 
specific altho I expect as a practical matter *ix is still a reasonably 
valid assumption, at this point.

IOW, best I understood it, kde-linux would include questions involving 
linux based device detection, samba, etc, stuff that's linux specific.  
kde (.general) would be where non-linux-specific app discussion such as 
quassel should occur.

Now I'm being told that's incorrect?  But quassel is certainly kde based 
as it requires kdelibs, so it would seem to be a kde app.  (Not being a 
quassel user, at first I thought perhaps it was qt4 based only, not 
requiring kde, but that seems to be incorrect as at least on Gentoo, the 
deps include kdelibs.)  And I see nothing about the discussion indicating 
that it's linux specific, so why would the kde-linux group/list be more 

Color me confused.
