didn't we have an announcement already, where all the science team people
cropped up and said we can't drop it? Didn't they offer back then to take over
if the KDE/Qt maintainers dropped it? Can't rememeber this clearly and I'm just
in the middle of setting up a new notebook so I might not have all e-mails
around. Anyway, if so, then a normal orphan e-mail to the BTS with the usual
copy to -devel should be enough IMHO.

Kind regards,
