Regarding 1615: The original problem description was resolved, but 
please refer to comment 25 for why the report was not closed.

Regarding 1655: I am concerned with the following:

* tdeio (tdeioslave): WARNING: Can't communicate with 
kded_kpasswdserver!

* tdeio (KIOConnection): ERROR: Header read failed, errno=104

* tdeio (KIOConnection): ERROR: Header has invalid size (-1)

* tdeio (KIOConnection): ERROR: Could not write data

* tdeio (TDELauncher): ERROR: SlavePool: No communication with 
slave.

* tdecore (KLibLoader): WARNING: KLibrary: symbol not found

* [dcopserver] Corrupt data!

As Commit 5354555 (2013-08-26) exposed these messages, would be 
nice if we tried to resolve them before pushing R14 out the door. 
In the bug report I posted comments how to repeatedly invoke some 
of the messages. Who knows which of these messages are associated 
with other bug reports.

Regarding 1054 and 1168: I tested the patches and responded 
accordingly in the bug reports. Those patches can be pushed and the 
reports closed as resolved. Good job! :-)

Regarding the proposed release schedule dates, I was updating those 
regularly but family emergencies have been keeping me away from the 
project of late. :-(
