Everyone agrees that active developers are needed. 

I see no problem in moving to KDE svn after a first collaboration and
active help are received. Witouth any prior help, I can only feel this
is a political offer.

Also, I was a KDE 2 user a long time ago and I still don't understand
KDE's choice to look like Windows. Take the example of Amarok, this once
beautiful software now looks horrible. Are the choices of users really
taken into account by KDE members and developers?

Another example: this mail was forwarded to our mailing list. Did the
developers take the time to register our mailing list? Will they really
help? I doubt. Help us first, then we move, this my personal answer.

Kind regards,
