So, I just talked to Andy. OOo release is still a little undefined. What do 
you think about this plan:

* We put KDE 4.4 RC3 into testing (should be available in some hours)
* This give us some more testing for KDE itself and let's us start some KDE/Qt 
  related rebuild (only few packages are affected)
* KDE 4.4.0 (final) will be available around end of next week (tagging on 3rd)
* We move everything (libjpeg, libpng, KDE, Qt rebuilds) to extra on February

What do you think about this? It should give us enough time for testing, 
rebuilding the remaining packages and does not block KDE.

People who replace official packages by their own should know what they are 
doing; otherwise they just shouldn't do it or use Arch at all.
