I am working on the KOffice2 package right now, actually I am going to
pause working on the package right now. The reason is because we moved
KOffice2 into main, and it had a lot of universe build depends. If we strip
out these build depends, we will have the sorriest package known to man for
KOffice2. I am a fan of KOffice2 and I do not want to see this, so before I
continue packaging KOffice 2.1.1 which is due out either tomorrow or
Wednesday, I am going to attempt an MIR on the missing packages. I thought
about uploading a substantially stripped KOffice, however I would be
wasting my time, as I would have to go through and uncomment a lot of

In the future, if we are going to push a package into main, and it has
build dependencies on packages in universe, I think we should MIR the deps
first before pushing a package into main.
