Feature #308461, revision 1
Title: Use new KDE branding for patterns and repositories

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Todd R (theblackcat)

KDE has recently release a substantial modification to how they describe their
various software projects:


I think openSUSE should change their KDE patterns and pattern names to reflect
this new branding.  Specifically, the core KDE libraries that are needed to run
KDE software should be placed in a kde-platform pattern.  Similarly, the plasma
desktop (and the upcoming netbook and media center variants) should be placed
in a kde-worskspaces pattern.  Other KDE applications should be placed in a
kde-applications pattern.  Going further, core, extragear, community, and
playground variants of these patterns would probably be provided.  For example
kde-workspaces-core would provide the workspaces components shipped with a KDE
software compilation (the name for a new KDE release), kde-workspaces-extragear
and kde-worskpaces-playground would provide plasma packages in the official
extragear and playground svn repositories, while kde-worskpaces-community would
provide plasma components from third-parties such as 


Similarly, the KDE repositories should be renamed as well.  So instead of
KDE4.3, it should be KDESC4.3 or KSC4.3 (to reflect KDE software compilation). 
KDE is strongly discouraging the use of names like "KDE 4.4" and I think we
should respect that request.
