Thats life, you need to push it there. We can decide to move it to other
places after 4.8.0, but now it is a bit too late.

There are two possibilities:
a) create a kdelibs KDE/4.8 branch for this purpose. (plus the patch to make
kdelibs 4.7 actually look like KDE 4.8, which I currently apply to the
tarballs only (in kde-common/release/make-kdelibs-4.8.diff)
b) add a tarball of artwork that I need to unpack in kdelibs prior to creating
the actual release tarball to kde-common/release/* as well)
For me, it would make most sense to create a KDE 4.8 branch in kdelibs, but I
would like to have more input before I create the branch.
Any opinions on this matter?
