I believe that is the best solution so far. Adding my own thoughts:

- now: a relaxed feature and message freeze for is announced 
- now + 2 weeks: trunk/KDE/kdelibs branches off to branches/KDE/3.5 and 
KDE4 takes over
- kdelibs 3.5 gets bugfixes and maybe even some features --- if backported 
from KDE4

Then we do the same for kdebase and maybe some other modules (kdegames, 

We should also define the release roadmap for KDE 3.5, setting the feature 
and message freeze sometime in August, with a targeted release just after 
aKademy (I don't think it is feasible to release it before).

After that, it's all KDE4.

Do we know when Trolltech expects to release Qt4?
