 Well I am a profane in packaging and I do not know the amount of work to
package a new kde 4.x.x release, but you seem to be very efficient in this
task. Maybe I am wrong but kde packaging looks like now something more or
straightforward, I mean automatic ? So why not backporting since now and
for every kde 4.7.X release to mageia1, it will make a lot of people happy
One more time, I am not probably aware about the amount of work it
implies.... Anyway thanks.
