I believe that with the Beta cycle for KDE 4.5 it was the frst time that
people switched over to the Unstable repository to get their hands on KDE 4.5.
What must not be forgotten is that the Unstable Repository doesn't have most
of the openSUSE patches in place, nor does it come with any warranty.
Since already a couple of months we had the situation where the Amarok and
Konversation packages in this repository were updated from trunk in the same
frequency as the KDE desktop itself.
The intention for the Unstable repository is that it would be co-installable
besided the normal supported KDE desktop (KDE:Distro:Factory). This in the
same manor as we had with KDE3 and KDE4.
