Please point to where the Council said that the Gentoo KDE project wasn't an official Gentoo project.

Sure there is. Let's look at what happens if you remove it: * It makes it harder for package manager authors to deal with things that were delivered by an official Gentoo project. * It makes doing future EAPIs more work, since we'll almost certainly end up rewriting things that we'd be taking out. As much as you might like to rewrite history to pretend it never existed, the fact is, kdebuild-1 did exist and we're better off acknowledging that. -- Ciaran McCreesh
