Ouch. Seriously, this coming from someone on the kde release-team
speaks volumes. Something is seriously broken here. methodologies?
OK, I think I'm starting to see... (thinking out loud) there's a
difference between kde 4 the development platform and kde 4 the
desktop. At this point, looks like the former is getting the most
attention (from the release-team's perspective anyway).
Am I getting warm?
If so, would there be any merit or consideration to position kde 4.0
like that, only (or primarily) as a development platform?
How far to take it? Release only some parts/modules as part of the kde
4.0? The rest could come later as part of the kde4 "desktop", and
kde-promo's ideas around release parties, etc..
