/me votes for the Fedora-Schedule as it is in the wiki and adjust that
in August / early September to the KDE 4.0 Schedule if it looks like KDE
4.0 will ship as scheduled.

KDE 4.0 is a big rework afaics. Especially those in my experiences from
the open source software world tend to slip quite often for weeks or
even months. That would be a major problem for Fedora then.

Or are you guys that voted for "+1" really 100% sure KDE 4.0 will be on
time? What is your backup plan if KDE 4.0 slips for one or two months?
