Thanks for the hint. This is one of the above-mentioned blogs 
linking to http://kdebian.org/.

I'm still somewhat reluctant to use this repo, for no other 
reason than the creator of the PPA hiding. Undoubtedly, there may 
be good reasons to do so. But it gives me a hard time trusting in 

Sure, I can always read the sources, as has been suggested in 
another reply. :-) I did not do that for the packages I've got 
from Debian, because the fact that they do not even try to hide 
who they are makes me feel I can trust them. This is not the case 
for http://kdebian.org/.

However, thanks dear Debian folks, thanks dear Debian community.
You're great.
