Oh, because a KDE live image which can't be updated without resorting to the
command line is <SARCASM>obviously</SARCASM> ready for release, and because
there was <SARCASM>clearly</SARCASM> no way a RC5 could have been spun in
the several days between the availability of the updated kpackagekit build
(to match the PackageKit snapshot used in RC4) and this meeting.
On one hand we have people complaining about the quality of updates, on the
other hand we're happily releasing crap we know is broken.
But of course the GNOME spin "works" (for some definition of "works", they
also have a PackageKit issue which was declared not a blocker –
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=567346 , which I guess also
affects KPackageKit, by the way –, and they fail pretty much all the tests
for beta or release quality, which I think the KDE spin would actually pass,
given that this is the same 4.4.0 we pushed as F11 and F12 updates and works
fine there, though I didn't bother testing this as clearly nobody cares
about the KDE spin test results anyway), so nobody cares.
