[opensuse-kde] KDE 4.9 testing and openSUSE

KDE 4.9 Beta 1 was released today. This is interesting timing for us, because
openSUSE 12.2 is already in version freeze. Without this constraint, we would
land the beta in KDE:Distro:Factory and prepare it for the next openSUSE
release, but 12.2 will be released with KDE version 4.8.4 (motto: stability
and polish, remember?).

However, we pride ourselves in providing packages of KDE releases, so I expect
that we'll have a KDE:Release:49 repo on 4.9 release day (Thu Aug 2).

The question is how to prepare for this release, since we are using KDF
already for 12.2 development

Do we create KR49 repo in advance and package tarballs there,
do we use KUSC snapshots right up until release day, or do we use KDE released
tarballs as KUSC sources? This would be my preferred technique, as this
provides testing of prerelease milestones, rather than arbitrary snapshots
from git. It also does not add additional load to the team or OBS.

I don't want to make any extra work for ourselves either - a good 12.2 has to
be priority.

Neither will we ship 4.9 *somehow* with 12.2, so don't ask :).
