The only thing unequal about DE footings in Fedora is the # of folks
working on each.  Just so happens, a lot of Red Hat employees are paid
to work on gnome, and I'd venture it outnumbers those @redhat working on
KDE.   NOTE: Red Hat != Fedora.  Nothing wrong with that.

Having been focusing most of my attention on Fedora's kde packaging, I
haven't had all that much spare cycles to work on the task of soliciting
help/contributors to the KDE cause on Fedora.

My roundabout point is... If you want Fedora/KDE to be better, then *do*
something to make that happen, like joining the KDE SIG,
contributing/maintaining kde packages, providing feedback, etc...  We
certainly could use all the help we can get.

Free punch and pie for all who attend the next KDE SIG irc meeting!
(not that you have to wait till then to contribute anything...) :)
