No documentation in 4.4 and waiting until 4.5 really isn't an option.

1) Remove all obsolete/outdated/confusing stuff from the current documentation 
until the first week of January, the result of this should then go into 4.4.0

2) Update the documention then until the release of 4.4.0 (February 9th), this 
updated doc should go into 4.4.1

Don't struggle with docbook markup, feel free to use any format you like. If 
you need any help with writing mail to kde-doc-english or drop me a note.

Don't worry about string freeze , I'll handle that as usual with kde-i18n-doc.

A friendly reminder to all devels:
Writing an excellent application is not suficcient, we have to enable our users 
to use them by providing ToolTips, QuickHelp, WhatsThisText and documentation.

So please check these issues for your application and send doc updates to kde-
