2 will still be too buggy (it always is). I would estimate 1 at the end of 
August (sooner than 1 month), 2 at the end of September, 3 at the end of 
October. We should stress to RT than KDE point releases won't have any effect 
on the rest of the archive, not even shlibs bump of anything (example 4.4.4 -> 
4.4.5 which went flawlessly). They have nothing to worry about.

As I said above, I expect it to be released way sooner. Quoting dirk:

Unfortunately it seems
that lots of fixes are being backported at the moment, so we have to delay
the rest to an early 4.5.1 release it seems.

Nop, there will definitely be removals and soname bumps out of KDE SC (some 
workspace libs, libkonq5, kdegraphics libs). A couple of packages will need to 
be binNMUed. That's definitely digikam (maybe new upstream release even), 
kphotoalbum, ktorrent, konq-plugins, kmess, kdiff3, probably a few more.

My vote goes to kdepim 4.4.x stack. kdepim-akonadi will be too fresh and 
untested for stable Debian release.
