While I'm willing to maintain it for the foreseeable future, I'm not
using it as much as I'd like (though the next few weeks might be
changing things again). Hence I'm not sure about moving it to kdevelop
(kdevplatform would be wrong IMHO as its of no use to Quanta for
example). I'll leave that decision to the community, but I'd like to
make clear that I currently don't have any plans for new features but
will be fixing any bugs that anybody finds (there's no b.k.o entry yet,
will do that once it moved).


You are fairminded, just and loving.
