The problem is that we must have an working KDK two weeks before KDE 1.2, so
everbody can test it.

It's not only the generated program by application wizard. There are generated
files by the class generator and kdlgeditor too. In the last weeks I got some

copyright situation on generated files. Anybody who want to write this?
