Same for kde-accessibility.  There is general concensus among the active
kde-accessibility developers that we want split repos, though Gunnar (the
release coordinator) hasn't given any input at all...  Anyway, we are ok to
move at any convenient time.  Though personally I'd prefer a time when I
could have some time (maybe a week) to test the resulting repositories and
building split/together so as to not recreate the kdeedu issues we had
