This is a good idea.

You have got me thinking about what I am trying to achieve. Indeed, I
would like to get feedback both from real usage and from users. One or
several releases are a good way to achieve that.

I have a few questions related to this subject.

How does one perform a release of a software that is in playground or
extragear ? I want anyway to go through kde-review before any release
can happen.

Do you believe it could be possible to do releases very often (like
every two weeks) ? I could ensure no UI labels are changing so that
translators are not doing extra work.

In order to have bug reporting through, I have to fill a
ticket to sysadmin ? I have not been able to find a sort of policy
about that.
