My old company I worked for had the same type of agreement. If you read their
agreement closely even writing your memoirs, legally, could belong to the
company ! It's funny what companies are afraid of, isn't it.

We could definately use your assistance and the next stage of kdevelop is
going to be even more fun than the last :-) Have you tried presenting kdevelop
to them and asking permission to work on this (in your own time, of course).
You never know, it might work...

Regardless of all this ... have fun :-)
