Sorry to say that, but I think this is a bad idea. Users expect a stable
version, not beta software - which I consider QextMDI is although it
works. I tend more to let it be the way it is and let the users download
the stuff themselves (I wasn´t even very happy with the QextMDI template
itself as it was based on the library which was under development at
that time already); instead I would like to replace the docs for the KDE
1.x API with those for 2.0 including the KOffice and KDEbase libs.

Note that I don´t want to offend anyone but I consider QextMDI as
additional software for KDE/Qt development and you´re the maintainer for
that, so that doesn´t match anything official. As much as I know you´re
convinced of your library and that it works it´s not what counts to my
mind when it comes to official releases.
