  W-O-W ... You assume my goal is to destroy okular. It's not. Okular
has no chances to be "good enough" for me before lenny is out, so I
stated that I'd be sorry that kpdf would go. You are escalating it to
something completely different. Once lenny is out, as kde 3.x will go, I
definitely will report bugs because okular will by force be my sole

  I prefer not doing that right now when KDE 4 is still such a moving
target. Not everyone can be a beta-tester 24/7. And note that I never
intended those remarks to go back to the Okular developers, my mails
have always only be written with "what will Debian release with" in
mind. That's why the mails were on the *Debian* Kde *Packaging* list in
the first place.

  You absolutely don't get it. I wasn't saying that okular sucks, if you
believe I did, look again. I said kpdf is still better, which is not
really the same. You're so convinced I said it's an horrible application
that you escalated the whole thing, but really, get a grip, I MERELY
stated that “for now I still prefer kpdf”.

  So unless you believe is the worse application ever, in which case
indeed, we can't talk to each other because I believe it's not, then I
totally fail to see the offense here. So yes, if you're still that
outraged, from simple remarks, you should do something about it, like
taking vacations or sth similar.

  I shrug.

  That would be far better than your quite aggressive mails so far.
