+Anything relating to the KDE-PIM project. See also
+The KDE-PIM project aims to bring together those who wish to help design,
+implement, test, etc. anything that's to do with personal information
+This rather broad scope encompasses mail clients, addressbooks, usenet news,
+scheduling and even sticky notes.
+What it is
+* kaddressbook: The KDE addressbook application.
+* kandy: sync phone book entries between your cell phone and computer
+ ("kandy" comes from "Handy", the german word used for a cellular)
+* kmail: the KDE mail client
+* kmailcvt: tool for importing mail related data from other programs
+* knode: news client
+* korganizer: a calendar-of-events and todo-list manager
+* kpilot: to sync with your PalmPilot
+* kalarm: gui for setting up personal alarm messages, emails and commands
+* kalarmd: alarm monitoring daemon, shared by korganizer and kalarm.
+* kontact: Integrated PIM application
+* karm: Time tracker.
+* kitchensync: Synchronization framework, still under heavy development.
+* kfile-plugins: vCard KFIleItem plugin.
+* knotes: yellow notes application
+* konsolecalendar: Command line tool for accessing calendar files.
+* korn: mail checker

+* libkdepim: Common code for different kdepim apps

+ module (KMail, KNode). This will be merged with libkdepim.
+* mimelib: MIME messages library
+* libkcal: C++ api for the iCalendar and vCalendar formats

+* kabc/frontend: A GUI frontend for libkabc, not intended for end users.
+* kgantt: lib to display and manage Gantt diagrams used by the project view
+ plugin of KOrganizer

+ KOrganizer (yes, we should decide for one of the Gantt libs)
+* kioslaves/sieve: Sieve kioslave
+* ktnef: handling of tnef data
+The following subdirectories have been moved to kdenonbeta/kdepim:
+* empath: a modular e-mail client, designed for reuse, needs a Qt
+ with threading support
+* twister: another personal information manager, needs empath
+* kab2: another design for the KDE addressbook
+* ldif: a parser for LDIF, the LDAP Information Interchange Format
+* libdif: dito, one of them is superfluous
