It is true that from originally expected "small" update the work has grown 
greatly. now contains a large number of fixes. If we were 
release updated versions more often, it could be now for example :)

However, I would suggest to leave the version as it is now == 3.5.13.x and 
R14.x.x. I believe that the changing version labels now would be for 
others confusing rather than helpful. For me, from experiences gained by 
working on the SRU, follows that for future bugfix versions instead of 
focusing on solving "all" discovered bugs we should prefer to release 
bugfix versions more often.

My tasklist for contain:

+ fix kstreamripper - bugs #1189, #946
- now I have patch for v3.5.13-sru, but I want to put it to be in 
accordance with changes in R14

+ fix kde-guidance - bug #1188
- it should be simple - but help is welcome

+ fix kde-style-qtcurve - bug #1109
- I need help with this

+ create v3.5.13-sru branch on meta-project 'tde'
- I have almost done - soon I will send a draft modifications to scripts 
to be applicable for all GIT branches

+ cherry-pick patches to change doc path from kde/HTML to tde/HTML
- patches is a lot, but integration should be straightforward - this 
should be done quickly
