Why not create a KDE:/45 repo now? It could be officially maintained till
November (and Factory be just a link to /45) and then left to the community
(of whom either a few pick up the work or at least keep an unmaintained SC 4.5
until 4.6 reaches stable status in February or so).

Since using the KDE Factory repository will most likely be a rather bumpy
ride in the coming months, because of 11.3+1 skipping KDE 4.5 and getting
4.6, I thought it was best to warn people now, when a lot of people are
tempted to upgrade to 4.4.5. The below text is copied from my blog.


With openSUSE 11.3 less than a week away, soon it’ll be time to think about
11.3+1 which will be released in March 2011 with KDE SC 4.6.

This should interest people using the KDE Factory repository a great deal,
because it means that Factory should move to KDE SC 4.5 RC very shortly,
and in November it will move to KDE SC 4.6 Beta. Leaving users with no
choice other than using 4.6 Beta or downgrading to 4.4.4 which will be the
version officially supported in 11.3 and available in the KDE Stable

In other words, if you don’t wish to use KDE SC 4.6 Beta in November, don’t
use the KDE Factory repository! Switch to the KDE Stable repository, which
already has 4.4.4. Consider yourself warned.
