Pardon the inevitable colloquialisms. While I understand the KDE team's desire to "surprise" the community with their stunning effort, but their collective response is just short of A DMCA take down notice. Alright, that's a slight exaggeration, but if the KDE team keep rehashing the perceived "wrong", they are just trying to enforce, or change the laws and agreements of the community. You are spot-on, when you declared that way of thinking more Cathedral then Bazaar.
I would say fascist, but I am a little harsh. That being said, the random-dudes constantly cherry picking incomplete projects are dicks. However, if you don't want your project released prematurely, don't put your project on a publicly accessible server.
