For Ubuntu 7.04 (Hardy), 0.9.4 schedule is just a bit too agressive. 

Hardy schedule [1] has BetaFreeze on March 13,  which is just couple of days 
before proposed Beta of 0.9.4. Similary, final release is just a week before 
Ubuntu release, which makes it unlinkely to be in time to include it.
Beta4/i18n would be prefferably before Hardy's UserInterfaceFreeze (Feb 28), 
but I think we can take exception here as digikam translations are primarily 
provided by upstream KDE (and not Ubuntu Rosetta translations).

If it is possible, I would suggest to move 0.9.4 schedule for Beta4, RC and 
Final for at least one (better two to have some buffer) week earlier if this 
is fine with you, other developers and other distro packagers.
