As we're planning to release the first alpha of Plasma Next next week, I'd 
like to go over some details that need discussing.

- promo preparations
- tagging / tarballing: can happen anytime on Thursday next week
- smoke-testing of packages
- rolling out packages on Monday, or sooner depending on testing?

We'll need someone to roll the tarballs and put them on the download site. Who 
is willing to help here?

Affected repositories:

- plasma-framework
- kde-workspace
- kde-runtime
- kwin-compositing-kcm

Am I missing something, perhaps the wallpapers? We have some bits in kde-
baseapps that could be useful, should we include that as well (as sort of 
limited tarball)?

This means: don't make changes to frameworks other than plasma-framework that 
are required, we'll not be able to include them in the Alpha.

It also means that if you have invasive changes, get them in NOW, we need some 
time to stabilize them.
