Now this problem should be solved...
it was my fault because I didnĀ“t consider the "admin" part as additional
package (i. e. from kde-support) and cvsup cannot handle those links
from other packages.
So the script which creates a KDevelop 2.x snapshot now is fixed.

You can test it with the kdevelop20000614.tar.gz.
