Actually, nominations should be used for this.  I wasn't sure if they
were appropriate for bugs without a fix, but after discussing with
bdmurray, it seems they are the right way to go for this.  So instead
of tagging, click "Nominate for release".   A decent summary of
Kubuntu SRU TODOs can then be gotten with

I have not had any experience with this.  So far I've been treating
KDE 3 and 4 as completely separate.  In most cases triagers should be
putting in the effort to reproduce bugs themselves (*pokes self*).
