With my release team hat on, i would have really welcome a you asking *before* 
you do such a big commit in a stable branch.

It is not my fault Plasma people decided to not have any more kdeplasma 
feature releases, a new feature in a stable branch is a new feature in a 
stable branch and it needs an exception.

With your explanation i don't think we should reject the exception, but 
seriously, some communication never hurts.

Please everyone understand that we have stable branches for a reason, and 
adding 10K lines in them is usually not the reason.

For me we can leave this as it is, but please  next time you need to commit 
such a big chunk of code to a stable branch talk to people on a mailing list 
and ideally the release team.

Now let's all go back to do amazing work :)
