The proposal sounds good. Is there a general non-kubuntu tag for
kubuntu-needs-sru? I'm not sure it helps to make that specific.

Have you had any experience of asking reporters to test in KDE 4? Are
people who report bugs in KDE 3 at all willing to test for it in KDE
4?

Actually, nominations should be used for this. I wasn't sure if they
were appropriate for bugs without a fix, but after discussing with
bdmurray, it seems they are the right way to go for this. So instead
of tagging, click "Nominate for release". A decent summary of
Kubuntu SRU TODOs can then be gotten with

I have not had any experience with this. So far I've been treating
KDE 3 and 4 as completely separate. In most cases triagers should be
putting in the effort to reproduce bugs themselves (*pokes self*).
