Yes, this was decided (by a coin flip, natch) at a IRC meeting which was 
preannounced on the various mailing lists.

The meeting itself was held 2011-Feb-13 at 18:00 (or so) U.S. EST. The 
timestamp for the coin flip result was 18:51:29 on my logs (again, U.S. EST).

aseigo, bcooksley, PovAddict, Uninstall are the nearby names who could 
probably attest if reminded.

My understanding was that someone was going to put the meeting results into a 
Wiki (and it may have even happened ;), and that there would eventually be git 
hooks implemented to ensure no KDE/x.y branches are created on official KDE 
modules to make the rule self-documenting.

I'll continue to have only limited Internet connectivity until next week so I 
hope this doesn't add fuel to some fire somewhere, but hopefully this helps. I 
can gzip the logs I have an upload them somewhere if that's helpful.
