Do I Remove the stable repositories, leave them there with lower
priority? Do I do this after or before updating?

I assume you by 'stable repositories' you mean KDE:Distro:Stable - if so,
remove them before updating

Step by step instructions from vanilla 11.3 are here:

A point of clarification, please -

The above msg refs using Factory for 4.5.0, and that upgrade went fine.
However, since this is Factory, the packages will continue changing,
apparently most are now at 4.5.1. Should not the user expect that there
could be incompatibilities or dependency issues since Factory is always in
flux? That is, Factory is not like a release where the packages are
tested in the aggregrate as a uniform set.

I wonder if, since Factory has moved on beyond 4.5.0, it wouldn't be better
to wait for a semi-official 4.5.0 spin?

We're going to be making a KDE:Release:4.5 repo and an 11.3 respin based on
it. Soon. Both will be 4.5.1 based.
