kdelibs has stabilized quite a bit since that time ;)
I think that scheduling KDE on KOffice is really the wrong way round.

AFAIK KOffice-CVS runs fine on KDE-3.0[.1], only a few very small things are
missing, for the rest we tended to simply incorporate the needed stuff into koffice

Let's take the time to make KDE-3.1 worth it, there is still much to do.
In particular all that mimetype stuff (incl. compatibility with the new spec decided
on the xdg-list, see freedesktop.org) should be resolved before we get another
version of KDE out, IMHO (and there's much to do).

KDE-3.0.1. runs well, it's not as if we had to replace it ASAP.

I'm fine with a +7 weeks delay as Dirk suggested, or more if necessary.
