Ok 2 is done, 1 has reviews pending then will be done too. KHangMan
will be released based on kf5 and Qt5 and will depend on
libkeduvocdocument and kdeedu-data just like Kanagram. No other
applications look for these .kvtml files (though you could open them
in kwordquiz or parley, by asking it to open them by filename. Crisis
