Thank you very much for the link!

This text is different, in a way that is very important for me, from
what I experienced a bit over a year ago on Fedora 29, which was then
the previous-but-still-supported Fedora version.

The text says: "Users of previous Fedora releases need to understand
that there will be no further updates to KDE during the life of this
Fedora release. Exceptions will be for bug and security fixes that the
KDE-SIG is able to backport."

I was on Fedora 29 back then, and my work was affected by . This bug was
triggered in August 2019 by a KDE Frameworks version update in Fedora
29, while Fedora 30 was released in April 2019.

I have checked, and the text is like this since 2014:
. So apparently, and unfortunately for me, the policy does not seem to
be followed.

Is there any chance that KDE SIG might adopt this policy and stop KDE
package version updates for non-latest Fedora versions? This would
really be a very happy change for me. I would want to help out with
this as needed, but sadly my C++ abilities are rather limited (I'm a
technical writer).
