I stated this before, but this really concerns
me. When we get around
to beta/RC stage of KDE SC, people will be able to use a mostly stable
KDE SC, but they will be forced to use it with perhaps the pre-alpha
level versions of popular programs like amarok that will be found in
the playground repository. This could very well be the case for any
KDE-based software that does not synchronize with KDE SC release
cycle. I think people using the unstable repository need to have a
way to install stable versions of KDE software that is not part of KDE
SC, or there will be a very serious risk of making the Unstable
repository nearly much unusable in practice (since no remotely stable
version of key software will necessarily be available).
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.
I've switched over to unstable to get every Beta/RC version of KDE
since KDE 4.0.0
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.
I know, and that was a big problem for me.
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.
Really? I don't recall seeing that anywhere. I must have missed it.
If that is the case it is fine.
