Yes.  as long as the review is complete by 10 Nov.

I don't know.
We've never had this situation with kdelibs before.

In theory, KSecretService is a new feature for kdelibs and as long as it passes review
before 10 November it should be allowed in KDE SC 4.8.

OTOH: we've been "unofficially" making noise that kdelibs is frozen except for bug fixes.

I'm of the opinion that KSecretService can be released with kdelibs 4.8 as long as it passes review.

What do others think?
