Development

Packaging is the lifeblood of a project on a distribution. This is the process by which software gets included in openSUSE so it is available on the DVD or the internet repositories to install. One of openSUSE's strengths is the freshness of our KDE packages, which are frequently updated with bugfixes from KDE SVN before they become generally available in a release.

Much of the KDE core packages are packaged by the KDE Team, but third party software, for example from kde-apps.org is welcome in our Community repositories.
