No, i'm not blaming anyone for anything, i'm just stating that both schedules 
were discussed outside this list, so maybe the list doesn't make sense as "KDE 
Applications, Platform and Worskapces" release list and should be repurposed 
as "KDE Applications" release list.

ok, typo from my side here, where i said "Disband the relase-team altogether." 
i meant "Disband the relase-team mailing list altogether."

What I was claiming was that "the release-team mailing list" wasn't involved 
in the discussion, so maybe we want to disband or repurpose the mailing list.

Again, not sure why you're pointing me towards plasma, i have no issues with 
them, my comment was if the release-team mailing list still makes sense or
