Someone did alert me to this, and I did reply with an apology. I
haven't seen it arrive here, so maybe Thunderbird got my mail IDs
mixed up again - sorry. Since the important bit there is also a reply
to your question here, I'll add it below.

As far as I know, there is no such list. However, there *is* a forum:
It's well worth directing questions there.
For anyone finding there way in generally from a browser, it's
http://forum.kde.org -> KDE Software section -> Operating System
Specific -> Windows.
Good luck, Francois.
