- the 20th December is just before Christmas, some devels will not be aware of 
the change (I think most are not aware at all on what's going on)
- will everything from kdelibs and kdebase and kdepim move (trunk = 4.7 and 
4.6 branch?)
- why would some split and other not?
- what about other modules? isn't it possible to have a snapshot on the 
current state of things? what about l10n?
- what about documentation for developers? what needs to be done?

All this is not on the scope of this mailing list though and should be 
discussed quite quickly.
