   I'm sorry, I didn't intend to leave anyone out.  I actually wasn't aware of 
NetBSD packages/ports for KDE, though I had never looked.  We have regular 
feedback and work done by OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Debian, and other packagers who 
make the packages for free in their spare time, much the way NetBSD 
functions.  The ones I mentioned came to mind as particularily active, or 
people with whom I have had contact in the process.  Of course I said "and 
others" in the interview too!  I am sorry, I did not intend to offend NetBSD 
or anyone else.

   In the future, if NetBSD makes KDE packages, it would be great to have them 
prepared and announced along with new KDE releases.  I've asked the release 
coordinator to do this for future releases.  Whoever does the KDE port on 
NetBSD, please contact the KDE release coordinator if you wish for this to
