Hi Martin,

My observations:

Currently Tim is busy with the sudden loss of server mirrors, SVN to GIT transition, and the TDE renaming project. He is busy --- swamped. He is the project lead but I won't be surprised if he does no testing of kwin4 for several months. :)

When the GIT transition and renaming project are completed, there will be a huge effort to merge patches sitting in wait in the bugzilla. Then there will be a lot of building and testing to ensure all merged patches function for all distros and users.

Then there will be a huge effort to focus on significant bugs that need attention for the next release.

Possibly somebody in the TDE community might start testing and provide reports, but for the developers and packagers our immediate goals are GIT, renaming project, web site improvements, and bugs. Thus, other than individuals, any possible team testing of kwin4 likely would happen after the next release, tentatively in May.

Just sharing my observations --- I have no official capacity to represent opinions of others on the team. :)
