if extragear takes a more prominent role in kde application release 
management, then it's probably not adequate, no. if it remains a place for 
3rd party apps that just happen to use kde's support infrastructure, then 

but for apps looking to become part of the official KDE project universe of 
applications, i think it's fairly useful to be kept abreast here. it's not 
like apps are added daily.
