[Semi-Urgent] KDE Applications 18.12 proposed schedule

next Debian stable aka "Buster" is in the pipeline [1]

    2019-01-12 - Transition freeze
    2019-02-12 - Soft-freeze
    2019-03-12 - Full-freeze

Unfortunately KDEPIM  breaks ABI, so we need transitions to get new kdepim 
into Debian, so we only have 1,5 month to prepare the transition, that is 
quite tough (for 18.08 I needed 2 months). Properly we will end up with KDE 
18.08 in Buster but ship most parts of 18.12 (depending on the manpower).

Maybe we can move the 18.12.3 release some days earlier? As we need 10 days 
migration days before the Full-Freeze aka we need to push the packages before 
2019-03-02. And at least we need some days to package the updates. Do you have 
an overview about how many packages get "real" updates within one version 
18.12.2->18.12.3 not only a version bump?
