I strongly object this solution. "Apps bundle" is just another generic name which does not solve the issue of people distinguishing between "all applications/projects by KDE" and "that specific set of stuff (not just applications) released together every 4 months".

I do think that "KDE Applications" is not a good name (in fact I am the one who proposed to change the name lately) but I don't think that this proposal would work.

It has been discussed but the discussion is not over.
