KDE Package Policy Explained

It's clear that the KDE Project has done a very poor job in communicating our policy on releasing binary packages. I say this because as the primary contact on the release blurbs, I am the one that gets swamped with emails asking "where is
insert-your-distro package?" and "how does this package work?" and "why are you discriminating against that-distro?" These emails obviously stem from the (incorrect) belief that the KDE Project is responsible for creating those packages. The following document will hopefully clear up just what our policy is in this situation.
