Security fixes for what? I think it is more important to release a KDE 3.0.6 
or KDE 2.2.3 than KDE 3.1.

Reading some of the comments about the lack of binary packages for the RCs I 
don't think many users will understand a KDE 3.1 in source only. KDE 3.1 is 
something to be proud of, we should release it properly, not just "sort of".

I am strongly in favour of delaying it till January.
