That doesn't seem to be the case. Technical details like the internal KDE
dependency graph are irrelevant to the definition of what KDE is. KDE is
what KDE developers decide it is. And KDE 3 is much larger than kdelibs +
kdebase. According to http://www.kde.org/info/3.1.html, KDE's processes
have resulted in the decision that KDE 3.1 will contain many packages:
And I see no signs or reasons that Stephan Kulow will reduce this list for
KDE 3.2. So any decision about KDE 3.2 packages must assume that KDE is
this large until contrary decisions are made.
