Yes I did send a message to kcd about my test kdelibs repo and talked
about the Dec 20 date[1].

Response from kcd:

After seeing Anne-Marie's concerns I really do think there is a need
for the release team to put their "release team" hat on and clearly
communicate to the community what's going to happen. Maybe via one of
those low-volume announce lists. Deciding what development happens
where when is certainly within the release team's "jurisdiction". Just
because I'm the one doing a lot of the footwork doesn't make me the
best person to do it (though feel free to delegate drafting to me).
