And KDE 3.5.x was released on kubuntu.org - from the origin kubuntu server 
for dapper. This implies to me and others, it _is_ officially released and 
part of kubuntu.

I'd prefer is like the same way.
Building a Bugfix release is noa as easy as is looks to noobs.

I hope also.

The big problem behind is, that for many applications it is not possible 
to "upgrade" to edgy, because edgy breaks a lot of important compability, 
by dropping "linux-thread" support. i.E. "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1"
does not work anymore. This breaks support for SapDB, SAP /R3 and other 
very important applications.
