I wanted to hack this soon, but first I wanted to make sure that kdevelop would
work if the kwrite cvs directory in kdevelop is replaced by a link to the
kdebase/kwrite cvs directory. Because that's what Simon Hausmann, Ralf and I
agreed to do.

Perhaps if you commit your hack now, then Simon can setup the link just after
your commit, so that I don't need to hack kdevelop to make it work with the
kdebase/kwrite. This would perhaps save a lot of time.

The problem is that for some time Kdevelop will not work as well as now, but I
think it's worth the improvement.

No problem for me.

I agree.
