Yes, most likely we'll port it. But only after it gets some testing and patches in cooker. The chance of porting is ~90%, I guess.

It's quite sad... Perhaps, we'd rather wait for 4.4.1 then.

4.3.4 has some nice plasma and kwin performance improvements/bugfixes compared to 4.3.2 and 4.4 is long from being finished (feb 2010 is the planned release..)

This is sad. I looked at the Mandriva changelog and saw that the maintainers were going to the route of cherry-picking bugfixes and backporting them at will into KDE 4.3.2. That says me that there won't be any major or minor update to KDE until 2010.1.

There is a bug in KDE microblogging plasmoid (not showing buddies' state in Twitter) that was fixed in KDE 4.3.3. Still no fix for Mandriva users.

So, I'm counting on you. Clearly this is a worse KDE update policy than Kubuntu.

If I'm not wrong
now in Mandriva the main Kde packager is Neoclust (Nicolas Lecurreil), and he makes now the most development in kde area, in cooker

while brasilian guy (Helio Castro) who ported/backported in the past all kde version is not more in mandriva, and that was surely a big loss

Neoclust have so many things to do almost alone, so it's possible he has no time to backport new kde releases for existant official mandriva

Maybe MIB could help Neoclust out a little...it would help us regular users out a lot

Hmm... Ok, we'll try to port KDE 4.3.4. I agree that it's very important to port.

I fear if we start a port for Kde 4.3.4, after a few days mdv would port too, and this is a very well known story for me,

I don't wish waste one week or two for nothing..., perhaps the only good thing could be that our efforts would push or force mandriva to port too...

but in the end, I can only give my availability and my contribution, to Pulfer and others who want to join, if they intend to work to make the porting and to mantain it

If you read the latest Mandriva Cooker mailing list posts, you'll see that the official stance of all the Mandriva KDE team is to stay at KDE 4.3.2, because, in their words, the overall quality of KDE is good enough and the QA efforts must be directed towards Cooker. So, a 4.3.4 official port, with all the QA that it needs, is out of consideration. Moreover; they won't go the route of shipping 4.3.4 without QA testing, so, you can, as MIB team, be sure, with a 99% of confidence, that there will not be, in the 2010.0 cycle, another update in the KDE 4.3 line. This policy change is also because the man who did the minor-release backports, Hélio Chissini de Castro, is not working anymore at Mandriva.

So, the only way for us, users, to have KDE 4.3.4, is a) to compile KDE by ourselves, or b) to rely in a third party repository, like yours (the traditional c) choice: downloading Cooker SRPMs and recompiling, is discarded because Cooker features KDE 4.4 beta 1). There won't be any second wasted in a MIB backport; this is an official decision of all the Mandriva KDE team, and there's nothing we can do about it. You can, however, bring us those tasty backports.
