I had to many tests at university to look at getting QtDesigner Plugins to 
work. Has someone taken a look at it in the meantime? Any advices how I 
should starting this now that I have a little bit of time?

Is this also possible for the QT Documentation?

Do you know of Konstruct (http://developer.kde.org/build/konstruct/)? I works 
very good. This way it only takes long for the computer ;-). In case you have 
SuSE I could also send you the compiled bineries as tgz. Creating rpm would 
take too much time I guess. All just in case you're intrested. I don't need 
PyKDE3.2 at the moment.
