Are you sure about that? I don't know how SuSE or RedHat and others do
their releases but I'd expect them to need at least 2 or rather 4 weeks
after a KDE 4.1 release until its patched up/fixed for inclusion in the
next release. So if the next release of a distro X is planned for
mid-june a release in mid-may would be needed. Meaning we'd effectively
have 1.5 months non-frozen trunk/ thats really very little time.


Today is what happened to yesterday.
