Well, my friend Heinz tells me that in real life, you are actually a 
nice guy, with a weird sense of humor, so if that is the case, I

I think that is actually true what I wrote. Martin is not too happy 
about some of my points of view. I don't blame him for putting me on 
ignore, it was just a remark to explain why I copied the release team 
mailing list.

OK thanks. That is acceptible, but I would still like to hear feedback 
from people who have actually tried Plasma 5.2.1 (not developers but 
packagers - people with some distance to the actual development).

Seems you talked to Heinz too during the past 20 minutes ;-)
I am certainly not opposed to filing bugs. I think it is important 
that a bug fix release _fixes_ regressions instead of _introducing_ 
them. I merely wanted to address my points before the public release.
