Hi Steven,
CC'ing you, because one cannot really communicate with the mailinglist-delay 
of up to 5 days... :-/

No one will kill you for your spelling and people on irc usually do not 
bite. :-)

Most of the devs of kdevelop use to hang around in #kdevelop. KDE-Devs in 
gerneral can be found at #kde-devel. IRC is along with mailinglists in fact 
the second important communication channel for devs nowadays.

Sorry, was my fault - you're of course right here.

http://developer.kde.org/source/cvsupmirrors_admin.html suggests to setup the 
script for annoncvs mirrors to run every 24h hours. So with that default 
config, it should be once a day up to date. But basicly it is the choice of 
the mirror-admin how often it will sync ( Contrary to i.e. gentoo - They 
force each mirror to sync at a given time and in given timeintervals )

Cheers Sascha
