I avoid third party repositories usually to avoid compatibility issues. 
I still remember quite some upgrade and switch between each other issues 
related those extra Debian Multimedia repository packages I used a long 
time ago.

I'd love that Debian Qt/KDE team and Norbert would work together – 
especially given that it is a small team –, but as far as I got there is 
some reason that they don't. I feel like offering an alternative 
repository, instead of first contacting the team was not all that

got there has been a quite strong reaction to his offer to help.

packaged, but as I am still not feeling like offering help myself, I make 
no demand either. It is all volunteer work after all.
