hi all,

thanks for the answers to my kontact-newbie questions the other day.
two items today:

(a) i'm having problems getting basket (the kde note taking application) 
embedded into kontact. this should happen automatically upon install (and did 
so last year when i tried kubuntu for the first time -- i had to erase it 
later, though, because i needed the external harddrive for a different 
purpose), but doesn't on my system.

in fact, basket should at least show up as a component under the "configure 
kontact" > "add components" menu, but it's not there.

does anyone know how to fix this?

(b) where can i place feature requests for kontact?

it's really only a minor thing, but could be very useful for japanese/chinese 
users. i'd like to see 3 fields added to the address book, to accommodate the 
readings (pronunciation) of 1. last name; 2. first name; and 3. company.
(it's not always clear in japanese how a certain name is pronounced, so 
japanese address book programs usually have extra fields for the reading).

these three boxes have equivalent fields on the japanese palmos, so if kpilot 
could accommodate this too, that would be even better (currently, it seems 
that kpilot treats these fields as one (for example "last name" + "last name: 
pronunciation"), which looks a bit confusing under kontact, and is even more 
inconvenient when you want to upload addresses to the palm, since you will 
have to edit them on the palm.
