I wouldn't dream of suggesting something like this :), but results of
posting to a public list instead of contacting privately are
predictable due to a number of horrible precedents like [1]. Therefore
my dark sarcasm.

To the best of my knowledge avox already participated at aKademy some
years ago. Now, I'm not a team member, so my opinion doesn't really
count, but I don't see why one of developers couldn't attend aKademy.
Even if you don't end up optionally using some KDE stuff, you are
doomed to meet some Qt developers in person there, and I bet that you
have a whole lot of questions and suggestions. Personally I'd rather
see some CMS guys there to get the blasted color management module
finished and merged to mainstream KDE (yes, I'm a happy GNOME Color
Management user, but so what?).
