Hi, I'll take these.

kde-plasma-ihatethecashew
kde-plasma-translatoid

libaccounts-glib
libaccounts-qt
libqttracker

For MeeGo stack, I'll take these, I did review for most of them.

We (as KDE SIG) should probably take care about the rest of K* and Q* apps/libs, 
I'll talk to guys.

Thanks Toshio
