Hi,

as some of you already might know I am the packager for KDE (PIM) on Maemo 5 
http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Mobile/MaemoPackages and also for enterprise 
5 for Debian http://saegewerk.intevation.org/kdepim-enterprise5-sid/. 
Enterprise 5 is KDE PIM based completely on Akonadi which hopefully will be 
included in KDE SC 4.5.1. At the moment I create weekly packages from svn 
trunk for testing. Yesterday we changed our kdelibs and kdebase-runtime 
sources also to pre 4.5 versions and thus I have to change my packages 
accordingly.

In my opinion it would be very sad if the package development has to be done 
twice and I would be really glad if I could contribute to Debian. For that 
reason I would like to ask if it would be possible to join our actions? Would 
it be possible to get access to your svn/git repos or to define some process 
to sync the packages?

My package descriptions can be found at 
http://websvn.kde.org/branches/kdepim/enterprise/packaging/debian/sid/
which is not the best solution. Sometimes I did miss package changes in Debian 
and my packages weren't installable or usable then. And of course the 
packages contained some misstakes because they didn't get revied by some 
experienced maintainers. Therefore I see many advantages to maintain all 
packages in Debian.

There might have been some misunderstandings in the past. We at Intevation 
(and also KDAB) don't want to bypass your work in Debian and provide our own 
self brewed stuff (I heard some rumors about that). It is and was always our 
highest interest to provide our work to the public and to work in the free 
software community.

Regards,
Bjoern
