I've been on this list for about a month now, and remember reading
some posts about work on the Java parser. And having used KDevelop as
a light weight alternative to Eclipse/Netbeans, I have realized
there's *so* much that can be done, and KDE can do, in this area.

I'll try to get the latest KDE, KDevelop etc from CVS and get a hang
of the build process first.

I assume building KDE and KDevelop from the Subversion HEAD is a good
place to start?
