Would it not make more sense to trial it using newer / smaller / unstable 
projects, as it is an experiment?

As it stands with plasma-framework in particular, there is now a difference in 
workflow depending on what *part* of plasma one is working on (framework or 
workspace). So not only is it now different from the majority of frameworks, 
it is also "different from itself".

That this doesn't follow current documentation (such as it is) for new 
developers certainly can't help any.

+1 for striving to improve KDE's infrastructure[1], -1 for experimenting with 
significant core repositories that are part of a larger stable release.

[1] even if I have my personal doubts w/regards to gerrit's appropriateness 
for KDE
