Proposals for Natty from Ubuntu Italian User

I'm reading the Italian forum, they are wondering where KDE 4.5.5 is.
If it was not clear, they asked in their email if it's possible to have 
minor release of KDE (i.e. 4.5.5) in the official repo  and not just in 
a ppa.
They know that KDE 4.4.5 was uploaded to Lucid in December, I think they 
think that this process is too slow,
since KDE 4.4.5 was due on June and they are using Maverick now. This 
probably mean that when we upload KDE 4.5.5 in the official repo for 
Maverick they will be already using Natty with KDE 4.6

Point 5, yes, this would probably increase the size of the CD, but we 
should put kipi-plugins in the seed or we should change the screenshot 
That's what they meant.
