I find it rather hard to see the difference between two adjacent states. I'm
not even sure what states I would use e.g. for the KDE: repos

Is KDE:KDE4:STABLE:Desktop STABLE or TESTING here, when from developers'
point of view it's stable and fixes keep getting added, but we don't really
test it that much as such and expect users to find possible problems?

Is KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop TESTING or DEVELOPMENT? We develop for next
openSUSE there, but it's usually stable enough to be normally used. Or should
we switch the state all the time depending on the situation, which nobody
will bother to keep doing anyway?

And I fail to see the point of BROKEN. Why would anybody intentionally have a
broken repo?

What are the expected workflows with these states? The first 3 could match
the 3 KDE STABLE/Factory/UNSTABLE repos, but the descriptions don't seem to
