When exactly? March 2? We'll see if we can get 4.4.0 out to the stable 
updates by that time…

… but the thing is, if we reduce our testing so we hit the respin and some 
regression slips through, we're going to end up with a broken KDE update and 
you're going to end up with a broken respin and everybody loses.

If on the other hand we wait 3 weeks to mark the update as stable when it 
already passed our testing, instead of just the respin users getting an old 
KDE, everyone is stuck with an old KDE and everybody loses again (not to 
mention the many complaints about "where's KDE 4.4?" we'd get, we're already 
getting them now, and the longer we take, the more complaints we get).
