Perfect.  Andreas & I are now fully fledged Ubuntu developers and we making 
uploads to the Ubuntu archive.  The archive structure wrt main/universe for 
Kubuntu may change in the future as the 'derivative distribution' 
infrastructure is finalised, but our KDE packages are not a fork as you 
perhaps imply.  There are no Ubuntu KDE packages as such - the non-ubuntu 
packages that you see in universe are simply (unsupported) automatic imports 
from Debian.

As a guide, those kde packages with an ubuntu version suffix are the 
beginnings of kubuntu.  We may be able to change that suffix to kubuntu.  
Elmo says the archive infrastructure can cope but I'll ask around a bit more 

If you'd like to start tweaking the 3.3.2 packages please go ahead.  Andreas & 
I will be busy for a while just getting everything uploaded.
