I don't like the moving around of projects in CVS involved with this 
organization (e.g. a project starting in the playground then being 
moved to the review module and finally being moved to a core module).

I also don't like the splitting up in N modules. Partial checkouts of 
kdenonbeta work very well for me. What aspect of managability do you 
want to address by the split-up?

Having one flat module makes it easier to find a project. It's always 
annoying to check out a project from kdeextragear because you first 
have to look through all the extragear modules where the project 
actually is located.

Other than that I think it's a good proposal. Having a playground and a 
review area sounds like a nice concept which better addresses what 
actually happens in kdenonbeta.

A question: How would this interfere with the kdeextragear modules? 
Aren't they also sometimes used as staging area for other KDE modules?
