Hi Troy!


Since KDE 2.1 is out now I updated the sources in GOODIES/misc.linux/KDE-2.1 
and removed the dir of the KDE-2.01 sources.
Is it possible to recreate the iso to ship the new KDE?
I uploaded the libs, base, support and bindings. They are required for 
BibleTime 0.31 and later.

Thank you!
