Sure, so the kdesupport devs need to give the distros and the
developers fair warning time.  They also need to tell us where
to pick up stable source code so we can build ourselves.

So maybe they need put up a website with tarballs.  Or maybe
they need to tells to use the version in branch.  Or maybe their
API matures over the years and it doesn't become such a big deal.
