It seems there are talks about a release schedule, with a soft freeze in a
couple of months, start of the RC cycle end of the summer and a final
release at the beginning off october. Which makes me wonder how feasable it
is to get KDE 4 in Feisty+1. I guess with a lot of effort (and probably a
month-delay or something) it would be possible to deliver the latest &
greatest with Feisty+1 - after all, Ubuntu follows Gnome releases by a
couple of weeks, so they pull it off every time. But KDE 4 is a big thing,
and it would come down to a choice of (again...) a 3.5.x release, stable and
all, or a bit more edgy, KDE 4 based release. A delay of 1 or 2 months of
the release, provided KDE is able to keep their release date, would solve
the problem, but I'm not sure Mark would allow that.

I make packages as KDE makes releases.  KDE 4 in feisty includes
