Ok, cool. Note that the goal of this article is to alleviate the exact issue 
Martin pointed to - people (and esp press) not understanding what is going on. 
I've contacted LinuxMagazin already and am about to contact as well.

The reason we're being a bit pushy is that the more information we have, the 
better we can inform people ;-)

It would be nice to know what the release plans are for at least 2014. Until 
now, we have something like I painted in my blog:
KDE frameworks 5 preview 1 December 2013
KDE frameworks 5 release 1st half 2014
KDE Workspaces 4.11 is last release (LTS)
KDE Workspaces 2.0 preview 1st half 2014
KDE Workspaces 2.0 release 2nd half 2014
KDE Applications 4.12 Januari 2014
KDE Applications 4.13 August 2014

How realistic is the above? It would be a nice roadmap to communicate. The 
only thing missing is then the transition of the Applications to Frameworks 5 
but we can easily say that, given at least another year of releases, we'll 
inform people about that later.
