kdeextragear-1 ?

My (selfish) reason: kdeextragear-1 is reasonably small for me to
compile. Everything in there compiles for me. I am used to your
near-perfect releases and commits -- so skli would fit in there.

kdenonbeta is huuuuuge. 50% doesn't compile for me and needs a lot
of manual Makefile corrections. skli doesn't fit in there (other
than increasing the compilation rate success to 50,5%... ;-)

kdeextragear-1 (as I understand) is a temporary repository for
projects which are "not yet there" (and whose final home in KDE
is not yet decided), but should catch the eye of more developers
and CVS users...
