A lot of us can relate to that. Most of us don't want to use KDE4 for one 
reason or another, and we can't sit wide-eyed and drooling at the computer as 
much as we'd like ;-)

Robert would be the one to ask about the openSUSE packages. From what I've 
seen, his OBS always seems struggling with one issue or another. Even if he 
has it working, I'm sure he could use the help. We also have a few people 
trying to get packages going for several other RPM-based distros, if you 
don't mind helping with those.

Bug squashing and testing is also welcome. Once the migration from svn to git 
is done, development should start for the next release.

There's normally a monthly developer meeting on Freenode IRC. The last one was 
a few days ago, so the next one should be in December. It hasn't been 
scheduled yet, but it would be a good idea to attend to help stay up-to-date 
on the latest goals and provide your own feedback.
