If one misses a KDE package, where could one ask for it?

I am missing a KDE package (that apparently exists in other distributions). Its name is kio-ftps-kde4.
Where could one request this package (or any other package) of KDE that one does not find in order to be efficient? In openFATE? Or is there another place within the openSUSE project to do so? As it does apparently exist it seems either a choice(?) of openSUSE or it has been just overlooked maybe? Or in the meanwhile it has been substituted by another one with other name and same function, but I did not find indication for it. I just found such a package for KDE3 and openSUSE 12.1. Curiously the same KDE3 package is not available for 11.1 evergreen (where I do use kde3). So in 12.1 I am left without because it is apparently not available for KDE4 and in 11.1 evergreen it is not available either.
Thanks for any further info.

There is a kde mail list, that would be one place. If it is a kde3, there
is a separate kde3 mail list.

Sorry for asking a bit retarded but that was quite a synthetic answer. Is this a kde mail list of openSUSE? Because KDE3 is not supported any more (at least I thought so) so I am confused how could there be a KDE3 mail list. The package existed either for KDE3 and as it seems should be regular part of KDE4. At least if they support the protocol ftps in KDE (FTP they do). If it is openSUSE, where do I find the mailing lists? Have patience, thank you.

in general I search in the buildservice online search and Packman - in this case it is available in the kde repo software.opensuse.org: Search Results

Yes.

Not supported upstream, that is true. But there is a very nice and active
volunteer that is maintaining it. We are fortunate.

Not all kde3 packages were incorporated into kde4. That’s up to the
developers of that package.
