For clarification: Your suggestion is to name the release itself "KDE 
Applications $YEAR.$MONTH", no all the applications, which are part of the 
release. So tarball names, version numbers in about dialogs, etc. would 
continue to have the known version schema 4.xx or 5.xx depending on what 
version of the platform/frameworks they are using. The release name would be a 
pure promo thing.

Is this correct?
