  technically, I'm just fed up with most of the application I liked in
KDE some time ago. kmail is a big POS (just look at the size of this
monster) that just segfaults too much, I now use my own mutt. I did used
kopete a lot, but I prefer to use bitlebee. and so on. The sole
appliactions I still use are konqueror and akregator.

  I firmly believe that you can't really (and it's especially true for
KDE) package software you don't use. The point is KDE is past a point
where it has too many functionalities that I don't use and that makes it
unstable for my daily usage, or make the functionnalities I use barely
usable. Maybe I'll reconsider for KDE4 ? nothing is lost forever, but
well, atm I've just lost faith.

  But like said, I remain available to help for sponsoring and uploads,
so that our NM's still can do their job ;)
