The ebuilds for KDE 2.2.2 are now in portage, unasked and tested and ready to
go. This is a major fixup and speedup release.
Upgraders, unmerge all previous kde-base/* packages after merging the new
ones, except only kde-base/kdelibs-2.2.1-r2. Also, if you were upgrading from
a really old KDE (like 2.1.x) and got a newer qt pulled in, remember to
unmerge the old one (any version <x11-libs/qt-x11-2.3.1-r2).
