Together with KOffice and vague plannings on 3.0.2 this means that translators 
(and a lot of other people) have to meet 3 release dates during the main 
vacation time in many countries: KOffice in July, 3.1 in August (if we keep 
early September), and 3.0.2 somewhere in between. If I remember correctly 
from past years, activity esp. in August is minimal. And although the  
releases are not of equal importance (esp. 3.0.2) this seems a bit much to 

Any special reason why we must have 3.1 this early? I mean 3.0 went just out 
the door, and 5 months (between April and September) does not look like very 
much time to me for adding a whole lot of new functions and test them 
properly as I think was planned for the first major release after 3.0.

OK, it's clear that we can't implement them "all", but probably we could 
implement a whole lot more and give people a little time to take a breath in 
between if we give some more time. I'd prefer if we could aim at something 
like late October, early November. Even with the usual delays we still would 
be out before the Christmas break then.
