"There has recently been gossip about the working and financial
situation of the KDE League. 'News' sites with questionable
reputation have run stories about financial irregularities in the
KDE League that entirely lack in foundation. This journalistically
irresponsible behavior is endangering the reputation of both the
KDE League as well as KDE e.V. and the KDE project as a whole.
"The Board of KDE e.V. has at this point and with the current
knowledge absolutely no reason to believe that there are any
irregularities in the bookkeeping of the KDE League. The Board of
KDE e.V. does not believe it is productive to disclose the books of
the KDE League to the general public, but is of course willing to
authorize the KDE League to disclose the books to elected KDE e.V.
