Perhaps then you should approach KDE and ask them why they are so
distribution unfriendly with their release schedule.

As far as I can tell (based on the 4.5 release date, scheduled 4.6
release date, and the general objections raised by the Fedora KDE
people) KDE is following a 6 month schedule, but timed such as it
falls in the middle of the releases of the major biannual
distributions, and doesn't fit the 8-month schedule of openSUSE at

If KDE really wants to get their latest and greatest into the hands of
their users as soon as possible then they should be more distribution
