That makes sense. So for the future, we'll ship Oxygen separately. That shaves 
of quite some MBs from the kdebase tarball (you mentioned 20K files), makes it 
easier to maintain for you and keep in a sane state for others to work with.

How should those releases be shipped? Is it simply OK to grab a snapshot from 
kdesupport anytime? Otherwise, tags would need to be created for the "snapshot 
release revisions".

Then the solution to this is to do with KDE 4.2.2 whatever Dirk thinks it's 
sensible (I can imagine that it's really way to late to change this for 
4.2.2.) For trunk we'll keep the separate Oxygen in kdesupport anyway.
