There is no way we can make everyone happy. People have been checking, asking and sometimes begging since before F11 came out for a Re-Spin. Sadly we could not get a spin that we were willing to release because of bugs that needed to be tracked down and fixed. We finally got a spin that could pass our testing, for the most part, so it was shipped with the note about what we did find. Once we are able to produce spins on a regular basis again we will communicate with the KDE guys as we have in the past. I have talked to Rex may times before we were ready to release to make sure we were not sending out a Re-Spin days before an update from them. Now if we could get the OO.o people, the Kernel guys, mozilla/firefox/thunderbird packagers, the * Team and everyone else to check in with us to let us know about a pending update we would be perfect.
