I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong, but my understanding is
the Debian package maintainers for KDE are intending to release
every second minor dot release. That is, we've got 4.3.2 now,
and we'll next get 4.3.4. I think this is predicated on the KDE
release pattern of a minor dot release every month - if that
starts to spread out a bit longer between releases, I suspect
the Debian guys might start doing updates more frequently.
It's a mammoth amount of work that goes into getting KDE
wrapped up coherently into a bunch of packages. As much as
I'd love to get some of the recent patches that I'm seeing going
into KDE's SVN, the 8-week cycle is a pretty reasonable and
workable compromise I think.
