KDE package policy explained

Author: JT Smith

From KDE Dot News: "It's clear that the KDE Project has done a very poor job in communicating our
policy on releasing binary packages. I say this because as the primary contact on
the release blurbs, I am the one that gets swamped with emails asking 'where is
insert-your-distro package?' and 'how does this package work?' and 'why are you
discriminating against that-distro?' These emails obviously stem from the (incorrect) belief that
the KDE Project is responsible for creating those packages."
