I personally think that KDE is releasing too often for its own good.

The late releases in the KDE 3_2 branch and the 3.2.3-3.3 update have had a 
pretty bad regression/bugfix ratio, which makes for a bad user experience, 
especially since a KDE update is never a small thing for anybody.

I'm very seriously asking to consider doing at least one release less per year 
and increasing the cvs freeze periods/packager feedback phase accordingly, so 
the project can put out releases with some longevity (i.e. a stronger focus 
on avoiding regressions and fixing bugs instead of merging new features from 
HEAD, so each release presents the major applications in a more solid and 
reliable state).
