About repository

The primary purpose of this repository is to provide package versions of the KDE applications which for some reason cannot be uploaded to unstable or experimental. Therefore, this repository is targetted at Debian unstable users who don't mind installing, testing and providing feedback for a bit more experimental stuff.
