One solution would be to release 4.9.1 of ktuberling and kalgebra with KDE SC 
4.9.2 . Since the first number is the app version and the second number is the 
KDE SC Version. Which only look related in this example but on a config 
management scale are unrelated.

I am just wondering about the distros again. Say i release KDE SC 4.9.2 and of 
all our packages only 10% got really changes. I wonder how that affects the 
workload if we force a release of the 90% unchanged ones. Or do they need them 
to be released?

Yes this is a unlikely number but remember with kde frameworks we split up 
kdelibs in a thousand packages. Let them mature a bit and we will get there.

For now i will ignore that. The script should be able to handle both cases and 
configurably so.

I think we have talked about everything i wanted to talk about. I will start 
with the release building script.
