True, I suppose.

Can branching/tagging still be posted to more of an "announce" list,
maybe something like kde-devel-announce ? As an occasional contributor to 
kdepim I want to know when branching happens, without receiving lots of emails 
on kipi-plugins issues or whatever else would be discussed on a 
kde-applications-devel mailing-list (which sounds in fact like kde-devel).

And yet he must have been on kde-cvs-announce, if he has a developer account, 
no? (iirc that's automatic).
But maybe the branching hasn't been announced? (I don't remember, sorry if 
this theory is wrong).
