There were some *discussion* about Fedora making a more strict releases
cycle somewhat aligned to the Gnome release cycle. There was afaik no
outcome from those discussions yet, but well, before starting to realize
those KDE plans it might be better to see the F8 release schedule first.

Even with the current proposed scheme and the estimated Fedora 8 release
date according to the old behavior I'd tend to say that schedule is
quite ambitious -- just let KDE 4.0 slip two or four weeks and the
release of Fedora**8 gets in trouble.

Further: all the important people are busy with F7. I'd say this kind of
discussion would be better held after F7 is ready.
