Dear KDE Extras team,
five days ago I sent Mark the e-mail you find below and haven't received an
answer so far. As Mark seems to be offline for some while now and the newly
prepared package would fix two bugs with high severity I'm now asking one of you
for sponsorship. Other changes include the bump of the policy version and the
fixing of the remaining Lintian error, which was caused by an error in a CMake
script. For all the other changes please see [CHANGES]

I'm happy to answer any questions which might arise when checking the package
before uploading it into Debian's archives.

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Kind regards,
Kai Wasserbäch

Subject: KVIrc: new package to fix two bugs with high severity

Dear Mark,
I hope you're well, didn't hear from you (or have seen you on IRC) for quite
some time now. Raúl and myself were busy with preparing the next package, which
we think, we've ready now, especially because it would fix two bugs of severity
grave [0] and important [1]. The only issue remaining - from your POV - would
be, that we still didn't sync the Hg back to the SVN. The reason for this are
problems with hgsubversion [2], but Raúl is working on this issue. Still we
think, that all the improvements of KVIrc and the two closed bugs would make a
good point, why we should release a new package. Therefore I'd like to kindly
ask you to grab the latest source package (actually you also find an i386 and
amd64 binary package there) from my website at [3] and upload it into Debian.

Thank you in advance for your effort and work. If you should like us to make
further changes, please feel free to tell us so.

Kind regards,
Kai Wasserbäch
