- Create a KDE 4.2 repo by copying the files from the Factory repo. The KDE

creation.

I have been watching and discussing the proposed repository layout for a
while. And I believe with the new release schedule for openSUSE the KDE repo
should be simple and look something like:

KDE:/{Stable,Release,Factory}

Where Stable is the current openSUSE version.

Where Release (or something that defines a release from KDE) is the latest
version from KDE such as 4.2.2 now.

Where Factory is the next openSUSE version.

Users should have no problem using Release and it switching from 4.2.4 to
4.3.0 as long as it is the latest release from KDE, right? With Release users
will never miss a release from KDE (and that's what they want).

Let's really try to keep this simple and avoid version number labeled
repositories. That really was the original intention of Stable, Factory, and
Unstable, wasn't it?

Therefore, the spins could just point to Release. This way Release is always
the latest from KDE.

At times there will be overlapping between the repositories but this is
acceptable. On the other hand right now Stable would be openSUSE 11.1 patched
packages, Release would be KDE 4.2.2 packages, and Factory would be whatever
openSUSE 11.2 will be using.

This way openSUSE KDE testing could always be done in Factory and bleeding
edge KDE users can always use Release.
