I personally think that's a bit extreme tbh, if a group of developers are 
stubbornly fixated in developing for kdelibs4 and not KF5 I don't see why we 
should not let them do the releases if they want to.

But this seems a bit hypothetical, I *hope* any actively maintained 
"extregear" app will be KF5-based in a year :)
