Extragear releases are out of the question. One of the reasons to be in 
extragear is having your own release schedules. You can't release an 
extragear module with >50% of the apps in high development.

I like the promotion part though. Maybe it's an idea to wrap up a Dot article 
each months with the latest KDE software releases (extragear, or maybe even 
some popular applications on http://www.kde-apps.org).
