For now I merge over changes done in trunk and it's still pretty easy to merge
as we haven't done too many changes that can't be easily reverted and redone
(calling qt3to4 and get it to compile). And as I said: if your feature freeze 
is end of june, that's fine. You just switch working to 3.5 branch and leave
trunk alone for the month. If you're done, you port it over in one go - either
reusing or overwriting the changes done in trunk so far. 

I'm also fine with whole of kdepim joining trunk development only in august.
I even suggest we remove kdepim from trunk then and copy it back into trunk
later. But that doesn't work for kicker. We really need a gradually ported 
KDE4 to test changes done to the framework. And we have to make sure we're
not loosing overview - and if all KDE 3.5 development is going to be merged by
me, we're going to loose overview. So I want a change in policy who is 
responsible for merging KDE 3.5 development into the then main development
branch - I don't want to dictate a policy on when this needs to be done and 
not even how.
