Uploading the files and just using repo-add isn't that hard, too. The whole 
thing will be in flux for some time and I decided not to use our svn-repo. 
This makes it easier to keep things together and don't get lost. Using our 
current layout it's not so easy to just checkout those packages within a 
certain repo :-).

Anyway: KDE 4.1 is still a kind of playground and I am not sure if they'll get 
it usable till Juli. ATM konqueror does not really work and plasma is pain.
