thanks for your feedback (also to Michael and Malcolm).

True. But mostly I was interested in the follow-up questions. To explain: As 
far as new developments are concerned, the KDE 3 branch is closed. Probably 
we'll copy the latest changes in plugins to the KDE 3 branch, since plugins 
are still (but not for very much longer) compatible. But other than that it's 
only important bugfixes. And since the KDE 3 branch been around for this long, 
any new "important" bugs are mostly going to be incompatibilities with new 
versions of R.

Ok, but that means the installation is typically some months behind, so we 
probably don't have to release 0.4.9c on time with R 2.10.0. I guess, we 
should soon after, but it's just more comfortable to do only one release at a 
time. So 0.5.2 will go first.

Ok. To explain a bit about this one, I was poking for barriers that we might 
be able to address inside RKWard. I'm afraid your department's servers are not 
something I can do anything about, though ;-).
