Your opinion may be correct about releasing extragear packages, but I
feel that it is too long for KDE user to wait for next stable release
one year or more.

Rather, shall we consider how end users can participate in the early
stage of KDE4 development?

1.  Preparing bugzilla for end users.
2.  To enable to easy report the request of usability or function
     from all applications.
3.  Carrying the name of the user who reported the adopted usability
     or function like developers or translators.

The bringing-up game of an electronic pet was in fashion.
It may be in fashion supposing we can "bringing-up" desktop environment.
