It can be done as Self Released or just added into Applications whichever
you prefer.  Since you say you won't find time for releases until later
that suggets it might be easier to just get it into KDE Applications and
take the burden off your hands but however you wish.  If it's self released
you can use whatever version number you like (the same for Applications
although it's more tidy to use the Applications version).

It's best to start stuff like kdereview sooner rather than later since it
takes at least 2 weeks. The time taken for a kdereview isn't much but the
roundtrips needed for the conversations to happen can take ages.
