Hi.  Can someone please review and accept our sources in the NEW queue please?
They are needed before we can our packageset refresh done.  

This is done, and the packageset refresh is in progress now that these packages are in the archive (or on their way there an no longer blocked in the NEW queue).
 
Most of those are actually OLD packages, but KDE have now split the sources minuet is part of the full KDE applications 16.04.0 release that we were unable to get into yakkety, due to not have some build depends for it in the archive  
It's too late for that now, but I noticed in some of these packages that there was still an epoch added. While they were new source packages and it looks like KDE has largely moved from "KDE 4" to "KDE 16.04" or in any case, a different versioning scheme, we could have done away with the epoch number without issues.

Did I misunderstand the changes to versioning and packaging in KDE?
