Encouraged by Pascal's blog post I thought I'd share some ideas/requests. 
Maybe some of them are of interest to some of you.

* Package Gnash + Klash (konq plugin for gnash). I believe the gnash package 
in oss doesn't work on youtube because it's built without ffmpeg and also the 
official package lacks the klash plugin for whatever reason. 

* Mplayer-thumbs. A KDE4 version is available, providing preview/thumbnails of 
videofiles in Dolphin/Konq

* KompoZer. It's the continued version of Nvu, afaik Nvu is no longer 
developed, and they had to change the name for trademark reasons, so it's not 
really a fork. I don't have a personal interest, but I think it would be good 
to have it easily available for the distro - though the i386 rpm available on 
the site appears to work.

* Update KTorrent to 3.1

* Keep up the good work

All the best
