Several related issues, based on my own experience and perceptions as
mostly a lurker on the release team:
1. KDE currently has a time-based schedule
2. This isn't a bug, but a missing feature
2a. We have no documented or objective criteria to identify showstopper
bugs (or features, for that matter)
3. We have no obvious/documented process for dealing with conflicts
between 1 and 2.
Now, I'd welcome discussions and input on how best to deal with these
(in the 4.5 timeframe). I'll even offer some suggestions of my own,
after pondering it a bit.
p.s. I'd love to be shown wrong about any of the above assertions about
things not being obvious or documented.
