Which subsystems do you expect to be added to kdelibs which won't make it for 
April 1, but will be able to make it a month later?

These all sound not like they would be affected by the subsystem freeze and to 
the kdelibs soft API freeze there still is quite some time.

As this should be a small meeting to be efficient, I don't think we need too 
much time in advance. In fact for example piggying back on the meeting Simon 
mentioned might be easier than to arrange something new a month later.

Wouldn't it be better to try to go with the aggressive schedule and move 
things later in case we really aren't able to make it?
