Just to make sure that we are on the same page, how many people do you think 
that are in charge of the entire Plasma for example? You can possibly count 
them with the fingers of your hand.

As for Frameworks, we have ~20 maintainers for ~60 frameworks, and most of 
them are not paid to work on it either.

We are all on the same situation and we have to make the best of it. We 
believe that e can do best if we focus on master and make sure master rocks, 
it has no regressions etc.
