» Dropping support for 9.3 and removing packages

I've stopped building packages for SUSE 9.3 in my repository as it is EOL since end of April. Also, I've removed basket, smb4k, kompose, qtcurve and krusader as those packages are all available from the KDE:Backports repository in the openSUSE Build Service with the same feature set (i.e. not crippled in any way). So if you're using those applications and were previously fetching the latest releases from my repository, make sure to add the KDE:Backports repository to your favourite package manager. With smart on openSUSE 10.2, that would be (as root):
smart channel --show | grep -qx '\[KDE:Backports\]' \ || smart channel --yes --add \\ /KDE:/Backports/openSUSE_10.2/KDE:Backports.repo
With zypp (YaST2 without ZMD), do the following (as root):
zypper sl | grep -x '/KDE:/Backports' \ || zypper sa --repo \\ /KDE:/Backports/openSUSE_10.2/KDE:Backports.repo

You might want to consider dropping yakuake also, for the same reasons.

Keep up the good work.

Using the RPM-MD metadata from 10.2 repository I still get two basket versions from your repository: 1.0.1_1-1 and 1.0.2-1
