It is absolutely consistent with its purpose,
i.e. weekly snapshots of
KDE trunk. Not sure what one could misunderstand about that description.
It's even speeled out in the first sentence of that repo's description
And your speculations about its usage are pretty useless.
So was your comment. I'm simply saying I won't be using the repo anymore,
Nope, you said "Without consistency, it can't be of any use to any
Not sure if you meant to use pluralis majestatis but if you would just stick
to "I" instead of generalising your point of view it would look less polemic.
Further I pointed out that UNSTABLE is perfectly consistent with its purpose
since the new policy of not remaining with a version
until it has been
released, but instead moving directly into the next development version is
not what I'm after,
There is no new policy it always was like that.
and I don't see that any regular users could find
interesting either. UNSTABLE used to be for beta testing a new release.
Nope, a) UNSTABLE was never meant for regular users and b) Factory was always
the repo for beta testing releases, since openSUSE only does openSUSE
There are scripts for checking out the latest source
tree and building
automatically, which to me makes a lot more sense for that kind of bleeding
Upstream developers probably build their code from source, and suse
developers will likely use Factory:, so UNSTABLE to me seems like a waste
of time and resources, since I don't see what the target group could be.
If you think this is useless speculation that is your problem. I know that
build service resources are limited, and shouldn't be wasted on things
that no one uses, so I think it is a fairly important question to ask.
Yep, and thanks to those that put work into UNSTABLE which you used in the
past and now tell them that they waste their time on something that only
But if you use it, that's fine with me. I just
won't, that's all
Fair enough? Just do not generalise and stick to "I" instead of "any
