Here is the current release schedule for KDE 2.0.1 and KDE 2.1.

KDE 2.0.1
---------

Mon 27/11
 - Last day for translations, documentation, icons and critical bugfixes
    commits to the KDE_2_0_BRANCH

Tue 28/11 morning
 - The CVS is tagged KDE_2_0_1, tarballs are released to the packagers

The rest of the week is spent testing the tarballs, packaging and writing the 
announcement and changelog.

Fri 01/12
 - Spread sources and binaries to mirror sites

Mon 04/12
 - Announce KDE 2.0.1
 - At that point the HEAD branch is frozen : no new features, bugfixes 
commits only, patches must be reviewed, no commit that modifies an 
application's behaviour (to avoid changes in the docu), and no i18n string changes.

KDE 2.1
-------

Thu 07/12
 - Beta version of KDE 2.1 - release of source tarballs only.

Mon 11/12
 - The CVS is tagged KDE_2_1, tarballs are released to the packagers

The rest of the week is spent testing the tarballs, packaging and writing the announcement and changelog.

Wed 13/12
 - Tarballs are made out of the HEAD of CVS, for KDE 2.1 Beta 1
 - They are both made public asap, and given to packagers

Mon 18/12
 - Announce KDE 2.1 Beta 1
 - Go on holidays and have a happy Christmas

Mon 15/01
 - Decide whether the next release is KDE 2.1 Beta 2 or KDE 2.1 final :)

This also means the freeze on the 04/12 is a feature freeze, but not an i18n freeze (for bugfixes that need an i18n change).

This is obviously open to discussion.
