Hello Robert,

I can't give you the definitive answer I'm afraid, but I remember someone 
asking this recently (on kde-devel or somewhere) and being told that it 
wouldn't work. Sorry, but I can't remember the details at all, just the gist 
of the thing.

When you tried to change repositories from your own to one of the KDE 
mirrors, did you do things as described near the bottom of

If that doesn't work, you might try sending your original mail to kde-devel 
to see if you can find a better answer or, if you've got a bit of spare time, 
simply checkout the latest sources from cvs (which you might have to do 
anyway :-)
