    Default KDE Repos for 13.1; a bit confused

    I am testing with 13.1 and KDE 4.11.2 in a VM while running 12.3 and KDE 4.11.3 on my primary machines.

    With 12.3, I have the KDE411 and KDE411-Extras repos enabled and have progressed over time thru 4.11.1 to 4.11.2 to now 4.11.3.
    Works well, no issues.

    With my 13.1 test bed, there is no KDE411 repo, which is explained HERE, sort of. I do have the KDE411-Extras repo enabled for 13.1 and see updates from there being installed. All seems well so far as well.
    I have found in the past that updates to some KDE packages, such as Digikam, appear first in the Extras repo with dependencies on the most recent release of KDE before being packaged and released for earlier KDE versions.

    My question is, why has KDE 4.11.3 for 13.1 not been pushed via the "maintenance" process? I assume "maintenance process" means the Update repo, which was enabled by the installer and is also working.
    KDE 4.11.3 has been around a while for 12.3, but was not ready when the 13.1 release was frozen.

    Is it just a timing/get-around-to-it issue, a not ready for 13.1 issue, or do I not really understand the "maintenance" process?

    Thanks

    Is this what you need?

    HTML Code:

    If you add the KDE:Extra repo for plain openSUSE 13.1, the packages there should _not_ need any extra dependencies (just dependencies to the KDE version included in 13.1). If they do it is a bug that should be reported.

    It will be soon.
    But 4.11.2 as shipped with 13.1 already contains a lot of bug fixes from 4.11.3.

    Thanks to you both.
    Looks like by the time I am ready to make 13.1 my production environment then KDE 4.11.3 will be there

    That will not normaly be the case. The updates you get through the Update repos are Security and Recommended updates. When you want newer versions of packages that are included in an openSUSE release, you have to search for other repos (and for KDE there often are). But that is outside the "official" openSUSE version, which will be kept stable until the next release. And that next release (like any) will have the newest versions as far as the testers are able to integrate and test it with that openSUSE version before it freezes.

    For a so calle rolling release look at Tumbleweed.

    Right, but the 4.11.x releases will be delivered as standard updates for 13.1, as was done with 4.10.x for 12.3.
