Sorry. I definitely didn't want to say that the packagers from kde-redhat
don't know what they are doing. All I wanted to say is, that I don't
know if the kde-redhat packages are of good quality, because I've used
them only for some days.

Did you ever realize how much text fits in eighty columns? If you now consider
that a signature usually consists of up to four lines, this gives you enough
space to spread a tremendous amount of information with your messages. So seize
this opportunity and don't waste your signature with bullshit nobody will read.
