The programs listed below are working, thus are going to be part of KDE 4.1, but are without a real maintainer. They got ported by our main v3 to v4 porters, but then no-one really sees them as their baby, cares for them, and has a master plan how to make them even better - for KDE 4.1 you would be limited to make only existing features shiny, given that the soft feature freeze set in several days ago. Yet this makes you familiar with the code base, so for KDE 4.2 you can go crazy. The working applications requiring new maintainers are:
- KDESSH - a front end to SSH
- KFloppy - format a floppy disks with this program
- KTimer - execute programs after some time
As we are in soft feature freeze mode now you would have to restart development in playground/utils and have a first chance for inclusion of the program with preparations for KDE 4.2 again. Still, you can make independent releases in the meantime of course. Or move to extragear if you like. All of the below which will not find an active maintainer until May 2nd will be moved to tags/unmaintained/4 otherwise.
- KMilo - KDED module to support various types of hardware input devices
- KSim - plugin-based system monitor
If you are interested in taking over maintainership of one of these programs please subscribe to the KDE Utils development mailinglist and say hello: https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-utils-devel
You are also invited to subscribe if you are just interested in following development of the kdeutils module in general.
