one option would be to do a KEG "release" every N months and just include the 
last stable release of every app in it. this would be more PR and awareness 
building than actual software release management, since the indivudal 
packages would have already been released separately, but this way one could 
probably get more attention for KEG (a release of 20 apps in a package is 
probably more newsworthy than a release of 20 apps separately over the course 
of a year).

really, it would be more of a "software compilation". that free software for 
windows CD has done pretty much exactly this and has been able to get a lot 
more attention for the whole set of software than man of the individual 
packages could ever have hoped to.
