Feature Driven Development

Just three words: I hate it.

The deadline was 9th of august, just one feature to finish and what happened? It's late. No feature, no release. That's why I hate feature driven development. I want bloody deadlines!

Can we take this as a vote for a time-driven KDE release schedule?? ;-)

Whats with the "no release"? That only parses for me if that piece of software added exactly one feature since the last release. I mean; why not release the software with all the FINISHED new features and without the unfinished new feature?

Maybe the real problem is not using a branch for unfinished features which allows you to release the mainline if the new feature is unfinished.

Oh, well, you only learn by falling once in a while, I'm sure that good solutions can be found which allow you the joys of feature releases without the pains you obviously feel now :)

Good luck on the wait, then.
