I just wanted to make sure that we wasn't planinng on waiting on this step 
before proceeding with the next step. 
And I agree it depend on the people working on it, but it can come "at any 
time", before or after going kde desktop.

I'm expecting that we will be blocking quite some testing migration - and the 
set of packages that needs changes do not differ.

Maybe release team (hi marc ;)  could tell if they want it fast and more messy 
or slowly and more quiet.

A big chunk of the problematic packages are the ones that uses more of kde 
than kdelibs (everything that just uses kdelibs kde3 can stay untouched as 
before)

It is a total of around ~50 packages, of these 15 is window decorations and 
stuff, some have unneded build dependencies on kdebase-dev when they only use 
kdelibs, some are plugins for kde3 apps and left is only a few apps with their 
versions in experimental and final, the problematic list:

boson
tellico
taskjuggler (fathi promised to take action, so not that problematic)
lurker (wtf?)

and a few bugs have been filed already for some other issues.

I will send out the full list after a bit of modifications and a bit more 
research. Or maybe try *urgh* to use a wiki page.

"both" as in the way you describe and in the way I describe, at least where it 
conflicts.

I just see the quiet, slow strategy as the long and painful approach and thus 
prefer to get it done with immediately.

You can never send to the e-mail address for overclocking the LCD operating
