Yes, I've asked Aaron to be there, as plasma uses it very much. Fregl uses it
in Parley, I use it in kanagram and the colors kcm and the wallpaper config in
plasma. Anne-marie was there last week, and uses it in khangman, not sure if
she'll be there this week again or not, I'll check. Anyway, we should have a
good representation I think.
