I don't and I'm not blaming anyone, I'm just stating a fact to give anybody 
who cares a heads-up.

Moreover, the py-kde in kdebindings is outdated - it's not even at 3.11.3 yet.

kdebindings is very unlikely to ever become a port of its own anyway, so the 
extra port is a good thing, too.

Suffice to say you're getting this the completely wrong way. I'm glad somebody 
actually cares for PyQT/KDE, I had pretty much given up hope on it.

I didn't implicate anything, I just committed the diff as you submitted it. I 
read the Description field wrong though, and as a consequence didn't read PR 
72153 and PR 72154, which I've reopened now(*). I'd be glad if you took 
maintainership of the triple.

(*) I was pointed to PR 72156 by the recent list of unfetchable ports posted 
to ports@, that's why I got this whole thing somewhat out of sequence. I know 
it must be frustrating to see the result of your hard work committed in a 
seemingly careless fashion - my apologies. I'll try and get the other PRs 
related sorted out now.
