KDE Factory repo down?

Okay not sure if this is in the right place or not. If it’s not i apologize. Is the KDE Factory repo down? I’m getting an error that says it couldn’t download the info from it when i run Yast.

Looks OK here
Eg: Index of /repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Factory/openSUSE_11.3

Post result of

zypper lr -d

The KDE4 Community repos appear to be down:
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community
As of now, of corse.

Maybe just disable autorefresh in YaST for those repos for the time being.

Hello again cal! Thanks for replying. Okay here is the actual error i get when running yast.

File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.3_KDE_Distro_Factory/'

Now here is the output of zypper lr -d

There was a notice about this
community has been removed - this: openSUSE-11.3-KDE-Extra

replaces it, to some extent anyway

Here is the message I received from the ML:

You are receiving this mail because you are set as a maintainer or bugowner
for the KDE:Community repository or a package present there. Any possible
discussion should happen on the opensuse-kde@opensuse.org mailing list.

To finish the reorganization and cleanup of the KDE repositories, the
KDE:Community repository will be either renamed or removed (after a grace
period). The reasons for this are:

  • KDE:Community contains software based on KDE3. Since openSUSE distribution
    no longer supports KDE3 and the KDE:KDE3 repository is poorly maintained, it
    is assumed that the majority of packages in KDE:Community is in a similar
    situation. For the KDE3 parts that are still maintained it would make sense
    to consolidate this effort only in one repository.
  • The naming of KDE:Community is based on the obsolete notion of community
    and “non-community” packages, which no longer applies to openSUSE, thus the
    name of the repository is obsolete and pointless.

There are roughly these options:

  • You maintain a package in KDE:Community which is not KDE3/Qt3-based and you
    wish to continue maintaining this package - please move the package to a more
    appropriate repository (such as the KDE:Extra repository, see
    openSUSE:KDE Extra repository - openSUSE).
  • You maintain a package in KDE:Community which is KDE3/Qt3 based and you wish
    to continue maintaining this package - please move the package to the
    KDE:KDE3 repository. You can ask for the opensuse-kde mailing list for any
    help such as getting maintainer rights for a package there (or even the whole
    repository if you are willing to help maintaining it, see
    KDE3 - openSUSE).
  • You don’t care - just leave it as it is, the package will be eventually
    removed together with the repository.
  • Some other option - use the opensuse-kde mailing list for discussion.
