So one idea might be to declare the KRxy repo with the the openSUSE release
KDE version as a KDE devel project for that openSUSE version and submit
updates to the official update repo from there.


If this happens there are IMHO two things to discuss:
1.) Should every minor update of the KDE SC be released as an official
update? Personally I would say that the last minor update should be
mandatory and everything else could be dealt with on a case by case basis.


2.) How to deal with packages not being part of KDE SC, e.g. amarok?
Here my personal opinion would be that as KRxy would be used as a devel
project also only bugfix release should be allowed.

That is easier said than done, because e.g. amarok and digicam don't really
offer bugfix releases - during the last official releases, not only bugfixes
were introduced, but also new features.

Since a potential bug only influences that particular application, it is not
as big of a deal as a bug in a kde lib or kwin etc...
This is similar to the Firefox,Thunderbird release cycle for which new
versions are also shipped in openSUSE:Update.

Here I would agree with Martin that KDF should still be build also for older

If so, I'd suggest to only build for the latest release (currently 12.2) +
Factory to keep build server use down
