Nice to hear.

Maybe you are right. I think it will make sense at some point but
unsure when. I do not think that it is should be an immediate goal.
But I think it is time to think about it. As you said: KDE is active
for itself, so the free desktop thing is getting less love for  a
while. While this is understandable I think this will happen every now
and then and will now allow to do a more continuous work. I think
priorities will shift in the not so far future. Especially if we all
know that there are not endless financial ressources for both projects
and so cooperation gets more and more essential.
