Bernd (or anyone else), can we set up a *document* about this ? I know
that jbb needed to explain that to other newbies as well, so it's
actually a need to provide a document that we can put into KDevelop, and other places how to efficiently do that. That's
very important to all the ones that want to send in patches and are
using anonymous CVS. We just need to tell them how and once we do that
in one document, we can always point that out.

Walter, we need fixes for the new autoconf version 2.50 in the C and C++
templates. Could you take care of that ASAP as the freeze for the 2.2
final is in a couple of weeks (End of July). I know I'm nitpicking but
it should be provided as the other templates using admin are already
working with that.
