  No, but on the other hand me this seems like an argument for trying to get all KDE apps into the "KDE Applications" umbrella since apparently the YY.MM numbering system works in users' minds. Is there any reason why Yakuake still uses its own release schedule, in fact? If some apps are holding back because the KDE Applications release schedule doesn't work for them, then maybe that needs to be addressed.
