I know, but I'm talking about KDE/KDevelop users that are trying/ 
evaluating KDE 4 beta.

I want to propose an alternative solution. I think part of the  
problem is the high commit rate in /trunk. From what I can see /trunk  
is very unstable and don't tell me it works for you, because it  
doesn't and it is two years that kdev4 does not work :-) So, my  
proposal. For one month you don't develop your feature-X in trunk,  
but you do it in /branches/kdevelop/whatever/feature-X then when you  
think that your code is good enough you ask Matt to merge the change  
in /trunk. If you merge only *good* changes in /trunk you will improve 
(by definition) the quality and the stability of KDevelop. Branching  
in svn is easy and cheep, merging is a different story (more tricky),  
but that's OK because you don't have to do it, Matt (as maintainer)  
will do it for you ;-) if you don't like svn you can maintain your  
branch using git or mercurial.

ciao robe
