If you're afraid of regressions commited to the branch, you're free to update to the
branch more often. I agree, that the risk of regressions in a branch not used by
developers is quite high. But it's a trade off we have to live with I'm afraid.

And the KDE 3.3.1 release is already way later than the 3.2.1 release - relative
to their .0 releases. Partly because of my vacation, partly because 3.3.0 was more
stable.  And yes, I have no problem with shifting the 3.3.2 release. But that doesn't
change the fact that it will be a problem if noone is going to use/test the branch.

Greetings, Stephan
