An article on dot will help, but it's not important where the information is hosted.

What is important is that it has the character of an official press release.
a) It has to show up in "mainstream" media (slashdot & friends) *now* - not when things happened.
b) It must *not* come along like "KDE developer Vishesh Handa wants..." but as "KDE will..."

This implies media control, ie. pointing authors of false reports to the one and only official statement instead of assuming sth. out of the meta-information (article/s or blogs about baloo ./. nepomuk etc.)
(As KDE won't be paying a PR agency - i guess - that means "by us")

Once a decision has been settled, it's time to contact kde-promo at on this topic. To shape an official note and get it out.

I assume this will say "done" before any transition happens?

There should be at least a link to further information. atm. it reads like:
"We're gonna remove nepomuk and then amarok is broken and unfixable."

Informations on whether things are actually in progress (prevent "nobody seems to care?" panic) would be nice.
