Yeah, one of the things I like about KDE Applications is that nothing 
contained within it can ever gets forgotten like this. It's not a 
panacea, of course, but we never run into a situation where an app that 
was once actively developed but has lost its development resources goes 
for a long time with no release because there's no longer an active 
maintainer to request it.

This automatic release process strikes me as a very desirable feature.
