Yes, this does involve a split up.  See
http://community.kde.org/KDESDK/Git_Migration#Module_Splitup  I was hoping
we could do the final migration this weekend, but if needed we could wait
until 4.9.5 is released or at least tagged at the end of December.

Release guys,

How are we combining git repos into a module for release these days?  I
remember creating some script to combine and put kde-edu into one folder
for tarring when we did the kde-edu migration, but can't remember what the
tool was or where the script went (and maybe something completely different
is used these days anyway).
