I am not a developer, I am just a regular user, but I do not see it happening.  A good idea would be to make a KDE 3.5.10 after KDE 3.5.9 to continue with KDE 3.5.X series, but it won't happen :(


If you want KDE 3.5.X, and still use Fedora you can use Fedora 9-X where X is a number less than 8, or a LiveCD which does not care for any updates, and you can still run and start without problems/updates/etc.
