Yes. You can expect it to stay there for quite a while :-) I intend to provide
as many debs for KDE 3 apps in the repository as my time allows and which
priorities I have. First it was to get a working 3.1 for woody (needed by the
company I work for, credativ (www.credativ.de) for a contract for Woody
installations using KDE 3.1, including Aegypten (the README on ktown tells
more about the reasons), then a set of needed third party apps also. I ended
up building packages for apps that I found useful for myself and already
applied as debian maintainer to get those apps in unstable after 3.1 is in.
Anyway, I will continue the official KDE builds for KDE releases on Woody and
provide apps there for the public.
I'm also considering to remove the KDE 3.1 debs completely as the ftp servers
mirror them to reduce the load on ktown itself, so having the KDE download
debline will need to be added. Then I could open up a second repository with
builds from HEAD independent from the current one for people who want to hunt
bugs on HEAD and want to give it a try, but no earlier than in a couple of
weeks after the 3.1.1 release is over.
We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
