While "extragear" is not the official name for a place anymore, if your
application has its own release schedule, detached from other released
"products" by KDE, then you may see that some internal tooling consider it
So it moves to the question: do you want to release with "KDE Applications",
adhere to that release schedule (major release every 4 months, with specific
freezes, etc)? If yes, then "kdemultimedia" is the place, if not it's
"extragear-multimedia". Which means that kwave will be released when you
release it.

This is a bit unfortunate. I can say that someone could have helped pushing
the kdereview process when you entered kdereview. kdereview is not a place for
long staying, while in your case you had releases from it, which makes things
a bit complicated for some internal tools.
That said, we can move forward with the review process (which is the entire
core of the meaning of "being kdereview").
