This would be good for Beta/CVS/testing KDE debs. Aimed at geeks who
want to test the very latest KDE. I find it quite strange that people
want to test KDE 3.1 beta on woody. Unstable is *the* "testing"
Otherwise stable KDE releases should be handled by debian as per usual,
Experimental repositry idea is about damn time. Gnome2 have had it for a
while now. We need a concerted "professional" effort to get KDE3 into
the debian distribution. All these different temp. places for the sacred
binary debs have been extremely frustrating in the past few weeks.
I am just worried though that many of the eager people who want to work
on this, are not debian developers. And the ones that are, are they
working together with the non-debian developers? It is all very unclear.
The irc channel is one thing, however what about a forum or a bugzilla
for mere communication purposes?
Might I add that Karolina's unofficial 3.1 beta 2 debs are mirrored
