KNewStuff3 can work with any server that implements the OCS REST
protocol. Currently the only implementation of it is closed source
though, and runs on and such. An open alternative has
been in the works called bodega, but I'm not sure how functional it is
yet though I have heard good things. KNewStuff3 doesn't yet work with
bodega though, but it should be possible to create a bodega backend
for KNewStuff3.
