Sorry I don't agree that is sustainable at all. Pulling from trunk is verging on negligence for a distribution. How does Mandriva know when trunk is stable? Do they continue to patch until trunk is released? Sounds like an awful lot of work bypassing the upstream release process. If upstream have decided that work on a library is work in progress, ie they haven't released. Then why would/ should a distribution take on that risk. If libkdcraw and libkexiv2 are ready for release, but the rest of kdegraphics isn't then it is time to break them back out again, or accept the inherent delay by being a component of the larger kdegraphics release cycle.
