Will KDE4 be back-ported to 6.06.x?


I just wanted to know if KDE4 would be available for the Ubuntus, especially for the 6.06.x (Incase they bring out dot-two) or for Gutsy Gibbon.

KDE4 is just too great to leave behind, especially for Kubuntu, and I'd hate to have to upgrade to a (partially; no LTS) unstable Ubuntu just to get to try out KDE4. Are they thinking about delaying Kubuntu 7.10 to include KDE4? Or are they going to wait for 8.04, where it should be much stabler?

I'm no Ubuntu dev, but I can be reasonably certain it will not be backported to 6.06. (Too much would be changed, and it might cause instability. They would not handle bugfixes for issues on 6.06) Also, I can't imagine why they would delay Kubuntu to wait on KDE4. If KDE 4 is ready in time, it'll likely be included. Otherwise, they'll just wait for a later version of Kubuntu.
