KDE:Playground; KOffice 1.6 Alpha

We have founded yet another KDE project over at the openSUSE Build Service. It's called KDE:Playground (SUSE Linux 10.1 repo view). Its purpose? To allow the SUSE developers to test development versions like the current Beta releases of Amarok, Basket, Digikam and Gwenview. You can even find today's KOffice 1.6 Alpha in there (until now only 10.1/i586 rpms built, 10.0 rpms [without Krita] will follow).

Nice! So fast :)

Any suggestions how non-suse developers (aka the rest of us) can benefit from this service?

http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/Roadmap talks about going public in third quarter but my guess is that it will more like fourth.

Be carefull with "the rest of us" In userland, "the rest of us" actually is open/Suse users.
Having Playground managed by a company insider is rather usefull. The cutting edge stuff - straight from the mothership. The fact that KDE is the ugly-duckling in the family actually IMHO a blessing. Ppl like stephen are actually more free to change and mold KDE experience. The user in me finds a reason to rejoice almost every time Stephen posts.

THx for basket 0.6.b2 package in particular.

Not sure if I follow this:

In KDELand there are quite a lot of people that are not open/Suse users. So I was wondering if anyone can highlight the reasons this is cool for a developer like myself that does not use SuSE.

Because it can also build packages for other distributions? For example look at this for rpms/debs of the Build Service command line client "osc".
