However, I also do not see why we cannot just do such big updates through
the regular update process rather than in a big .1 drop. The KDE SIG has
experience with pushing big grouped updates that look a lot like a .1
release for Plasma users. They go through the regular update process just
fine. Grouping them together with updates to GNOME, LibreOffice etc. in one
batch is not necessary and would only add unnecessary delays.
I think pushing all updates in a big drop will actually make them LESS
tested than if they just trickle through one at a time.
