Unfortunately, one of them ( Max Brazhnikov (makc@) ) is the committer I
am writing about.
And I CC:ed the kde@ mailing list, but got reply only from Max. I quoted
it here ("we can't just remove it...")  - he is not going to fix it, and
he is not replying to my e-mails anymore.
That is why I am trying to find someone who can help with this situation.
