When the maintainer feels the app has reached release quality, he'll ask
the maintainer list for inclusion --- either into KDE or extragear. At
that time, the developers will have to review the app to make sure it is
working and is release-quality. That's what kdereview is for.
You're going to say: so, why can't they simply check the app out from
Well, they can, but there are some people who are not in the maintainer
lists that could help in testing. It's easier if we could just look into
kdereview and say, "hey, new app here. Let's see if it even compiles..."
That's my opinion.
