I know of the Plasma release schedule problem. But this is bigger
apparently. The bug that forced me to leave Fedora a year ago was . This bug was
caused by a version update of KDE Frameworks, affected usability, and
took over a month to fix.

Following this list, I see that breaking updates to KDE are kind of a
regular occurrence:

I would guess that the component version updates mid-cycle cause the
breaking updates. I would really appreciate some explanation of what
the version update policy is.

Also is there *any way at all* to have a reliable KDE environment on
Fedora, apart from not updating the entire system?

As a long Fedora and KDE user I usually don't enter such discussions, but nevertheless, I feel a response is in order.

Following your own anecdotal experience and some random bug report you _assume_ that your own personal experience is "regular occurrence" (your words, no mine).
Let me share _my_ anecdotal experience: I run a business on Fedora and CentOS. ~20 desktops and workstations (Most running Fedora/KDE) and far too many servers and VMs.
Sure, I see breakage from time to time, but my experience couldn't be any different than yours.

Heck, I'm typing this on an aging Xeon workstation that has been running Fedora/KDE since Fedora ~12-13 (!).

Does my personal anecdotal experience negate yours, simply because I have more PCs? Nope.
... and this is the exact reason I avoid making broad generalizations. E.g. " breaking updates to KDE are kind of a
regular occurrence"...
