Stepping down from KDE, Gecko, and vbox …

Howdy Guys,

Few Weeks ago i wrote that i’ve got a job offer in Kuala Lumpur,
I got this Job now and unfortunately now I need now to reorder my
life a bit. So first step is now to step down from KDE, Gecko
and vbox teams. I am not really happy about this step but sometimes
priorities goes to new state and we have to reorder something.
I’ll spend my time more to portmgr stuff, mentoring fresh
Blood, Gnats cleanup’s and committing any good stuff. I’d like
to say many thanks for all the nice time in these teams ;-) .

Presenting KDE 4.3.5 for FreeBSD.

Howdy,

The official release notes for this release can be found at
