First, KOffice has allways had his own release schedule separated from KDE. I 
guess for historical reason it's located as a top svn directory, if it was 
started today it would probably end up in extragear/office. But that's not 
the problem.

Second, as I understand, Tom's point is not about the exact location of 
KDevelop in svn, it's about wether a module (or an application) is _allways_ 
released at the same time than KDE or not. If it is, then it can be in the 
main module. If it's not the case, then it would be easier for the release 
team to have it in extragear. In KDE4 extragear module will allways be 
released with KDE4 but including a version tagged by their maintainers, which 
might or might not be the same tagging date as the one of KDE4.
