You are absolutely correct.  But there are three small issues:

1. Alpha_6 *should* have been tagged before the kde-3.2-a1 was tagged.  This 
was a delay on my part, but that's what should have happened.

2. I don't think that Coolo is going to officially release 3.2-a1 because it's 
so buggy.  Thus, it may be helpful to have this package.

3. What will be in alpha_6 is actually not quite synced to 3.2-a1 because of 
some fixes that have happened since.

So, I say that YES, we will let Coolo handle the packaging for KDevelop 
(which, by the way, has already been taken care of) for the future.  This is 
the last one that will be done by hand (unless some branch or fork comes 
along in which it is necessary to create a new package).
