Just to chime in -

The case is similar for me. Until .1 or .2, I'm actively running the stable 
branch, so that I can test it and catch regressions, after that I start 
focusing on master and try my best NOT to backport any patches. They just 
don't get tested.

Also, maybe you guys test out Kwin, but I've rarely (if ever) gotten reports 
about the PIM side of searching. There is a LOT to test.
