I'm really starting to feel that this is the crux of the issue. So
where do we go to start influencing KDE?
hmmm, well maybe the solution is ship software with version > 4.x.1 only
skiping 4.x.0 and 4.x.1.
so only others distributions will ship 4.x.0 and 4.x.1 not Fedora
but the above will not fix anything, only thing will happen is which the
versions 4.x.2 will have the same quantity of bugs which the 4.x.0 and
4.x.1 in the present
the problem cause is not enough users test the updates before released
so when the packagers review the decision to push a stable update, the
bug list is short and no showstoppers are known
the long list of bugs is built after by the users which care to report
bugs. and only after the release of the updates.
so meanwhile the users don't test the updates to be, the situation will
be same. now Fedora ships Virtualization software, so the excuse to not
testing the "updates to be" in the own computer, well install them in a
Virtual Machine and test them.
