Sure, coordination would be great. At the moment I feel we might have a 
misunderstanding on all sides and we are talking about different versions and 
packages. And it seems the users who reported those bugs don't really know 
what they are using either. 

To clarify:
* We have put an repo called kde-unstable on our mirrors
* ATM we have packaged the 4.2.95 tars Dirk has uploaded to ktown
* These were created from tags/KDE/4.2.95 and are about revision 986427
* Except some gpgme related changes nothing was updated in that tag and those
  packages will be released as rc1

Some of those reports confuse me as well and it seems they are using something 
else but not the packages provided by us. :-)
