Ok, we are saying the same thing :-)

Agree as well. Anyhow substantial or major bug fixes would probably be better done in minor releases, not in the 
maintenance ones. Or should be incorporated in the maintenance ones only after a reasonable amount of test time.
IMO, maintenance releases should address bugs that do not require major rework/changes. I think of them as a way to 
improve v14.0.0 without major changes on it.
Instead I consider v14.x.0 releases at the same strength of the old KDE 3.5.x releases.

Just another 2 cents.
