Heh, thanks for the advice.

KPackageKit is hosted by KDE svn, so to commit to KPackageKit you'd need a KDE 
account. The generally accepted KDE policy is that if you 'own' some source in 
the tree, you have free reign. If not, you should talk it over with the 
owner/maintainer of the file(s) or projects before you commit. Unless of 
course it is trivial stuff like i18n strings. I've got more time than daniel 
at the moment, so I'm handling most of the patch submissions and kpackagekit 
hacking while he works on our other important project (PolicyKit-KDE)
