KDE_2_2_BRANCH is really really closed now, there won't be another KDevelop 
2.x release.

If you'd like to help, please install KDE 3.1beta and check out KDevelop HEAD, 
this is the place where new stuff should go in.

You can send patches to this list (using "cvs diff -u3 -p") and if you send 
too many patches we can talk about a CVS write account ;)

Best regards,
