Yes. All SVN branches follow the 'x.y' naming scheme (with no KDE/). The
ruleset file for this is in [1]. Future branches should follow the same

On the kdeutils side, the migration rules have been ready for a few

only next month. We are not in a hurry to move, so at least kdeutils can
have its migration delayed until it is OK for you and the rest of the
release team.
