last IRC meeting we agreed on most new KDE repositories [*], I have updated
with to match the setup we've
agreed on and later I'll update the still pending issues (the unstable ones).
However, since 11.3 is almost here, we should get KDE:Extra and
KDE:UpdatedApps into shape.
I'll create a bugreport asking for updating the community repo list. I've
also created http://en.opensuse.org/KDE/Extra_Repository
which should provide all
information about the repos. Note that 'osc setlinkrev' currently seems to be
broken, so KDE:UpdatedApps currently points to latest versions in
KDE:UpdatedApps should be now populated with everything from
KDE:Distro:Factory that makes sense there, as already said setlinkrev doesn't
work, but it could perhaps use some work to make some apps build on older
distros, as feasible. There is a problem with defining what to do with build
requirements. For example, Amarok requires taglib-extras, which requires
taglib, which is provided in a sufficiently recent version only on 11.3,
older repos don't build. Taglib-extras is more or less Amarok stuff, so
including it there is fine. But taglib is a generic library not maintained by
us, so it is a question if it is ok to include a newer version in
KDE:UpdatedApps. One of the problems here is that since the repo is in the
yast2 community list, potentionally a number of people can add it and end up
with a version of the library that is not officially maintained on their
distribution, and this might cause trouble (to the packager of it, and
possibly even with the actual usage). Suggestions for how to handle such
cases are welcome.
KDE:Extra is set up, but is currently almost empty. Feel free to copypac
packages from KDE:KDE4:Community which make sense and will be maintained. If
you want to maintain something in KDE:Extra (and do not want to maintain the
repo as a whole), see http://en.opensuse.org/KDE/Extra_Repository
(do submit requests or ask for maintainership for a specific package).
I've added maintainers to the repos for which I could find a record of them
saying they'd want to become one, but I'm sure I missed several, so if
said in the past you would help maintain the repo and you're not set up yes,
just say here or on IRC.
