KDE 4 is still full of bugs ATM -- what do you think would happen if
users report all and every KDE 4 bug which is no packaging issue in our
Well then I would be a fool to do the opposite, wouldn't I?
Seriously though: for a start, users would be able to get a good
overview of potential problems to look out for, for example when
considering whether to try the packages at all. Especially if the bugs
were marked "forwarded" (which I usually do). I don't see any negative

can argue about that instead.
