Hi,

The biggest problem I noticed during two years of x86 service was stabling something like KDE or Gnome. KDE took about five hours (even with optimisations by doing repoman once locally before --force committing it to the tree), where people had broken trees after sync and complained loudly (including insults). We communicated the forthcoming stabilisation one week ahead via GWN, Planet and -announce...no help. So branching to KDE-3.5.10-stable, keywording all packages, merging back in one commit would really help.
