I will ask the obvious.

If there is a fantastic amount of bugs solved by one change, there are no new features and no string changes are needed, may you do a backport of the fix for KDE 4.6.2 or 4.6.3?

This will be a major bugfix (just like bug 246678, fixed for KDE 4.6.1) and will increase even more the NEPOMUK adoption rate. That's something needed, because 4.7.0 will surely have novelties in the NEPOMUK field.
