Yes, I've seen your efforts on the panel-devel list but you seemed to do quite 
well. That's not to say it was an easy ride and it always helps if there's 
more than one person doing the kicking.

I agree, there's not really an easy solution to this. I was impressed by the 
number of entries on the 4.1 feature plan, though perhaps that was only due 
to high volumes of kicking.

I think what it comes down to is that if people don't want to make the effort 
to tell people what cool new features they've implemented then we can't 
really force them and they're only really hurting themselves. I for one will 
be bullying kdegames to make sure that we add all the features to the 
changelogs in time for the 4.1 release.
