I hear you and I am as pained.
When I attempted to take over from Michael 10 months ago, I still had 2h/day
that I thought would be able to dedicate to kdeprint.
My priorities are (in order)
- CUPS-1.2 and new features,
- bugs gallery
- peanuts (pdf tools, etc.)
Passed through new cups api twice. Still need time to get accustomed.
Last 6 months (October to February++) saw me completely overwhelmed. KDE was
far down on priorities list. Things start to come back. Yet, any help is more
Thanks for listening.
