Makes sense, but IHMO dropping a spin will only make things

It seems that even KDE didn't get proper testing this time and I think
we all agree we cannot drop it.
A spin only "tests" a certain configuration and set of choices not
made by the user but by the Spin groups. The problems usually show up
when people deviate from that safe path.
I think we need to work on fixing the process. Dropping a spin is
the last resort.
The most important fix to the process is making it not 1 deep. There
needs to be more than you Bruno and Kevin working on it because your
times are maxed out and saying they will get better rarely works.
Second we need to get the owners of the spins take responsibility of
them and keep them up to date. Sending stuff off 6 releases ago that
no-one checks out just says that spins are where that data goes off to
