Yes, I am still trying to download these via dialup, but have noticed
a problem already.  kdenetwork is held back when I apt-get
dist-upgrade (on dapper).  It seems that kopete-3.5.5 is needed by
kdenetwork, but is not available in the repos:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

Thanks again for making these packages for dapper.
