Which is also being sync'ed to contrib for those wondering :-).

I quickly ran my validator scripts on his repo:

The number of missing footprints and md5sum is kinda worrying, even more
so since this has been pointed out when he joined contrib back in
january this year [1].

Other than that, it's great that Alan volunteered to take over KDE, and
if you feel confident that he's up for the job I think we should make
that happen :-).

Independent of who takes over the ports, would it maybe be a good idea
to have KDE in an SVN/ports subdirectory on its own, to be able to
recruit dedicated KDE maintainers? The same could be done for gnome,
which is currently hosted by Matt privately.

I assume we could host that on crux.nu, labelled as official subproject,
so it's not like those ports would lose any credit.
