This is the spec we wrote at the last conference.


Nothing has happened because there have been no further KDE 4
snapshots, but when there are we'll make sure to package it.

Scribus isn't a KDE app and has its own help centre built in.  Any KDE

Gnome but the Gnome help dude hasn't been able to implement it.
