I wasn't aware, thanks for noticing. Now I'm involved with that, I've written 
the latest message as "jmsantamaria".

Let me explain somethings to avoid confusions (as far as possible):

*Project admins for krecipes at sourceforge*
bossone - Cyril Bosselut (or Bosselut Cyril?), original author of krecipes.
jakin44 - Jason Kivlighn, original author of krecipes.
patch_linams - I have no idea who is.
ugarro - Unai Garro, original author of krecipes

*My sourceforge account*

*Current trunk repository*
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/extragear/utils/krecipes
Note that there isn't the translations and docs here, only the application.

*KDE svn accounts*
mlaurent - He worked the initial porting stuff in the kde svn
sauve - Daniel Sauvé, as Laurent Montel he worked on the initial porting stuff.
joselema - It's me
And also there are other contributors.

*Krecipe's history*
Afaik, krecipes was unmaintained by it's original authors while the switch 
from kde 3 to kde 4, so Laurent Montel and Daniel Sauvé have been porting 
krecipes on their own on the kde svn, but the didn't commit anything the last 
year, and a few weeks ago I sent this mail to kde-devel:
I get no response from the krecipe's original authors, so I applied for an svn 
account. And during this last weeks I've been porting the setup assistant, the 
backup functions and some bugs. And as I said before, I don't have permissions 
to release files yet. But I hope.

Yes, I don't want to maintain the kde 3 version, except for very serious bugs 
like #478030

I will release if possible a new tar.gz although and I will release as 
krecipes 1.0~beta2. Unfortunately I can't ensure something better than beta 
quality now.

I will care about translations and documentation above the 2.x series, I need 
to check their current state. In fact, I'm planning for 2.0 a *partial* port 
to kde 4 which should be apropiate to translate and take new screenshots for 
the user manual. And of course should be appropiate for end users and for 
uploading it to debian.
