personally, i prefer the KDE/X.Y style as well; and as we haven't had more 
accidently pushes of X.Y branches as people have become accustomed to the git 
tools more, the original reason for suggesting to move away from KDE/X.Y to 
just X.Y seems to have gone away?

not an official, consensus based on that i know of; there were some ad-hoc 
decisions made, but that's about it.. and now we have some inconsistencies in 
our modules. personally i like the KDE/X.Y branch names as they are 
unambiguous and would like to use that style.

+1 to that.

my suggestion:

* give a 1 week period on this list for discussion and objections
* at the end of that period, if there is consensus, inform sysadmin and 
request their opinion and consensus on the matter
* record this on techbase as part of our commit policies
* start fixing the modules that don't follow the consensus conclusion
