So, we will have to agree to disagree on that one point

When I look at the repository you sent the link to, I see that most files were date stamped on December 8th, a few on December 12th and the latest files on December 15th. Yet, it is being actively worked on. When I look at the Cinnamon link, I see files that were updated anywhere from December 19th to 11 hours ago.
Actions speak louder than words.

I am also longtime KDE fan. But it seems to me that some peole do not have anything to do except waiting for LM 12 KDE.
I have some hardware which did not work under Mandriva 2010 and I was waiting for Mandriva 2011 with hope.
In the meantime I was searching and testing various KDE distros for 3-4 month. I found, tested and started using LM 11, which was not KDE but I was satisfied.
But still I was very looking forward Mandriva 2011. And finally Mandriva was out. And it was disaster. After throwing out Mandriva 2011 I was back on LM 11.
This is my short story.
So some one-two week are not matter for me.

As for distro hopping most of us here have been there and done that. I'm waiting to update my "main" PC which is used by my whole family so continually changing distros is not viable.
There seem to be many users here who only consider their own needs and not those of the the community. Because you're ok with the situation does not mean that all users may be. Gnome users post here regularly saying there is no issue with the wait. If the Gnome edition were delayed as the KDE version had been there would be uproar.
