Hiya,

This is to keep you up to date with the status of the KDE 2.2
 release. I have added a bit more time in the schedule in order to
 fix security problems that exist with our use of https at the
 moment. I hope that everyone else can use this time to do some
 additional bugfixing. Please be very carefull and send patches of
 your changes to a mailinglist for review first. *)

*) Last week someone commited a trivial patch to kio_http.cc which
 broke HTTP for everyone. That wouldn't have happened if he had
 posted the patch for review first! (Sorry :-)
