If KDE4 will indeed take so long and there's no KDE 3.6 planned, meaning that 
KDE 3.5 will still take several months, then the release schedule pages 
should still be updated to reflect what has been done already and what 
hasn't. There are also a lot of items which can be taken off the list. I'd 
suggest removing all those which have been there for 3+ major releases 
without any work being done (and they can be readded if anyone wants to work 
on it).

Right now many developers are confused about the situation. Having a schedule 
is intended to solve exactly this problem. If the alpha/beta dates are 
shifted a month or two, this is still less problematic than what is the case 
now without any schedule at all.
If some modules work on KDE4 now and some work on KDE 3.5 (at least 3 of them 
do), this should also be documented. Refusing to put up such information 
because there might be a delay in the future leads to nowhere.
