Based on the feedback received on the initial proposal, I would like to
indicate below which changes will be done on the KDE repositories
Repositories that are not mentioned, will be removed.
KDE:Qt* : No changes for the KDE:Qt repositories. We are currently busy
setting up the structure for the Qt 5.x builds.
KDE:Release:XY The older KRXY (before KR411) will not change. KR411 will be
build for 12.2, 12.3 and 13.1 and will contain only the KDE SC packages. New
repositories will be set-up starting with the KDE SC Release Candidates and
will be build for the current openSUSE release and the previous one. Example:
KDE 4.12 RC will be available for openSUSE 13.1 and 12.3 in the KR412
repository and then will receive updates based on the released tarballs
(Final, .1, .2, etc)
KDE:Distro:Factory: This repository will contain only the KDE SC packages and
will be the development repository for the KDE SC packages in Factory. This
repository will normally only build for Factory, as that the equivalent can
also be found in the KRXY repository. The only exception is that as soon as
the Beta of the new KDE SC release is available, then KDF will switch to the
Beta and then we will build for Factory and the current openSUSE release.
(Example KDE 4.12 Beta will be build for Factory and openSUSE 13.1. This to
validate the build for openSUSE 13.1 and repair build errors, before the RC
will be available in KDE:Release:412. Remaining question is if we remain
building for oS 13.1 in KDF after KR412 has been created or that we encourage
people to switch to KR412).
Your openSUSE KDE community team
KDE:Extra: This repository will contain all additional applications that are
not part of the KDE SC (e.g. Amarok, Konversation, Calligra). This repository
will become the new development repository for those application packages that
are currently in Factory. This repository will be build against all supported
KDE:Unstable:Extra: This repository will contain git snapshots, alpha's and
betas of the packages in KDE:Extra. We will build against the same targets as
KDE:Extra, but we will be more stricter on the lifecycle. Non-maintained
packages (e.g. lower version than in KDE:Extra, build failures, etc) will be
deleted from this repository on a frequest basis.
KDE:Unstable:SC This repository will be the development repository for the
openSUSE KDE team. It contains git snapshots of the upcoming KDE SC version
and is considered as suitable for only the very experienced users. Users of
the repository should expect breakage, packaging errors, non-working systems,
etc. Patches and Packaging changes will be executed and validated first in this
repository before implementing them in KDF. This repository will only be build
for the 64bit version of Factory and the current openSUSE release.
As indicated before, we are planning to execute these changes in the next two
weeks. When each step is successfully completed, a status update will be send
out to this mailing list.
