Ok I will try to explain. The 'Project:KDE:Devel' should be the project
where the kde development stuff on meego happens, like in the same way as
be now. The 'Project:KDE:Trunk' project should be the one which is
always stable, because all changes will come over 'osc submitrequest' form
the 'Project:KDE:Trunk:Testing'(staging) project, after I kind of 'quality
assurance' has happend. This means we should create a weekly 'testing' image
from 'Project:KDE:Trunk:Testing' and try it out. If all wents fine and we have
done the merge from 'Project:KDE:Trunk:Testing' to 'Project:KDE:Trunk', both
projects contain exact the same stuff, so there is no need to test the (stable)
'Project:KDE:Trunk' project again.
To bring something into the (staging) 'Project:KDE:Trunk:Testing' project, you
can just blob your changes into the 'Project:KDE:Trunk:Testing' package form
'Project:KDE:Devel' or use 'osc submitrequest' mechanism. A qualified changelog
should be mandatory for this step. I will overhaul the continuous integration
mechanism to get more details into the automatically generated changelog files.
At the moment I prepare a inital blob of the revision of the desktop summit demo
to the (stable) 'Project:KDE:Trunk' project. I prefer this revision because it
is widespread and tried out many times.  After that I will setup the staging
'Project:KDE:Trunk:Testing' just via OBS links to the packages of
'Project:KDE:Trunk' (by this it is very easy to keep in sync).
