When it started, it was supposed to be the Factory packages with latest

considers fitting into the repo).

I am still trying to keep the Factory structure (meaning spec-files and
patches) as much as possible. As you already indicated it would be good to
have already the learning for the next KDE release in the KKUD, so that
with minor efforts the packages could be transferred to KKFD.

Based on some requests from the community I have tried to have the full KDE
functionality available by adding optional packages to the Build
Requirements. Also it seems that KDE trunk is getting more and more
additional required packages (e.g. grantlee library to build kjots, etc).

I agree with you to take the :Distribution part out of the name.

But then how about replacing "Distribution" with something else. Like "Base"
or "Core" or "Main" or whatever. So that we can keep the repos with the basic
stuff (stable, factory, unstable) grouped together _and_ separated from the
add-on repos (extra, playground, backports).
