What exactly is part of this proposal then? Is it

(a) All modules which are released as part of the "KDE SC 4.11", or
(b) only kdelibs, kde-runtime (and kde-workspace)?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but apparently, I'm still not
familiar enough with the SC/Platform/Workspace/... terminology ;-)

Best regards,
