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.

That would imply dropping "unstable" (kde trunk), and for the current
situation it would mean maintaining two sets of KDE 4.2 packages - one under
development and one vanilla. While of course a lot of users would like that,
(since they all want to have their cake and eat it too) I don't think that
would be worth the effort long term.

Having two different repos with 4.2 (factory and release) would also confuse
users. As would the "stable" and "release" names.

Besides, I think time is on our side regarding this "problem", because:

1) when 11.2/4.3 comes around the need for running newer-than-officially-
included KDE should diminish greatly - especially for the non-technical/non-
enthusiast set of users.

2) If we refrain from changing the repo structure all the time, over time
(most/more) people will learn to understand how it works.
