Valorie spent some time at Akademy telling me about some other person she
knows who uses the project. It might not be active, but it isn't all doom
and gloom either.

We do have two semi-active developers; Alexandr(Kaffiene) and James.

You've been actively blocking anything from James for over a year. I know
he's very difficult to work with, but amongst his distributed-presence
monstrosity he is also fixing things including going through the bugs.

(for context for others, you get a complex patch, you ask a question about
something and you just get a bigger patch with more and more unrelated
changes in it with zero description. No matter what you type, this
continues forever. I think it's a language problem). He isn't bad though -
the fact that he's kept uploading them despite the frustration shows some

Upstream is mixed. Kaffiene's work on Telegram is pretty good.

As for KAccounts. It's been a huge setup since it went in.
I don't think I've ever managed. It's one of 2 things (the kpeople port
being the other) that killed me working on the project.

Thinking positively we do have two options for the latter.
 - We can restore my original ktp-accounts-kcm, it would be a fairly simple
job, the code is still there and the original auth handler still works.
 - we modify my ktp-bootstrap file to fetch and build them.
