Is there any progress on that matter?
I'm one of Gentoo packagers, and we really would like to know which patches 
are recommended for 4.4 for distributions (from KDE4 point of view) - as 
there's no further release planned in that line.
So far we apply:
0248, 0254, 0256, 0262, 0263, and 0265
I guess all now-in-4.4-branch and now-in-4.5 should be safe but we would like 
not to guess. For example I found latest qt-copy patch (systray fix) - one of 
the most requested - only worsening situation (btw I don't need to rebuild 
whole KDE to make this patch work, do I?)
