KDE 4.8.2 release and Maintainer Position

KDE 4.8.2 is going to be released by this week after Dirk has uploaded the sources on their FTP servers to be tested bu the packages. Some patches goes through and forces to packages rebuilt, but it's all for good reason, to make it better release than ever. KDE will make an official announcement in the next few days and hopefully most packagers are ready to build those packages to their linux distribution. Meanwhile, in his short email, Dirk has sent a resignation letter to his current position of being KDE release manager for 4.9 branch. He will keep maintaining 4.8 branch until 4.8.4 (the last planned release for KDE 4.8). We will see a new release manager for 4.9 in next July.
