= Summary =

o Last preparations for final development freeze: 
- Final development freeze was before the meeting. 
- Documentation in kde-l10n is still broken and excluded from the build. 
- This was not considered as a blocker for Fedora 9 and would be released as 
an update if/when it is fixed. 

o kdepim requires kdebase3? (#441541): 
- The "First Start Wizard" was reported to not work properly without kdebase3 
being installed. 
- POP3 and STMP operations are also not working without some related kio 
slaves from kdebase3. 
- kdepim fully requiring kdebase3(-libs) would blow-up the live images. 
- A solution for this may be to identify the needed parts in kdebase3 and 
split them out in a kdebase3-mail-ioslaves sub package. 

o state of konq-plugins (#438126):
- Review hasn't started yet, although there seems to be no show-stoppers found 
in a short test. 
- The "Obsoletes: kdeaddons" should maybe be moved from extragear-plasma to 
- But for this the package has to be in GA at release time. 
- It could also be released only as an update after GA without the Obsoletes. 

o Administrator mode in systemsettings (again) : 
- In System Settings the sections "Login Manager" and "Samba" require root 
- This isn't implemented upstream yet and proper upstream support for this 
issues will likely be included in KDE 4.1. 
- LukasTinkl was working on a workaround to fix this which isn't included yet. 
- Until this is addressed by upstream the patch will be included (with tag 
requesting to rel-eng) 

o Missing default face icon (#441154) : 
- KDM with a user list theme didn't displayed a default face icon. 
- This is already fixed in kdebase-workspace-4.0.3-7.fc9. 

o BootManager=None in in /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc (#441313) : 
- SebastianVahl reported an issue that he has to pick one kernel of a list of 
kernels when trying to reboot from KDM to actually reboot. 
- BootManager=None would only workaround this issue. 
- This is a bug which should be fixed instead. 
- #374011 is related to the configuration entry. 

o Switch to Waves Artwork (KDM, Background, ColorScheme; what's still 
missing?) (#441167) : 
- KSplash was switched to a matching waves artwork some time ago. 
- KDM was recently switched to non-themed greeter with the current waves 
wallpaper as an initial implementation. 
- Unfortunately the work on the wallpapers is still on-going. 
- Also a matching ColorScheme isn't existing at the moment. 

o Release notes (re-check: is anything missing?): 
- The release notes should be fine. 
- Final freeze for zero-day release notes is 18 April.
