actually, i am doing 3 already, at least for i386 since hardy. maybe my long
list was not readable enough, so i'll try a table this time:
R version || UR (<R) | cran (+R)
KDE 3/4 || +rkw3 | +rkw | +rkw3 | +rkw
hardy || rkward-kde3 | rkward | rkward-kde3-cran | rkward-cran
intrepid || -- | rkward | -- | rkward-cran
jaunty || -- | rkward | -- | rkward-cran
so there's eight different binaries in my repository. this table can be
decoded to find the repository needed:
deb http://reaktanz.de/deb/<repo_name> <ubuntu_version> main
with <ubuntu_version> coming from the first column, and <repo_name> being the
value of a specific cell.

this might be true. and i don't think they're interested in packages that we
are still testing ourselves. provinding them with a working diff for the
latest official/stable release might help them, but not all the testing stages
before. do you agree?

i'm using six vms at the moment -- hardy, intrepid and jaunty, each in two
flavours (with/without cran R).
i don't think we need to support versions before hardy, do you? but 64bit
versions would be useful, and probably packages for the forthcoming 9.10 in

i'd count in 3. as well, because it is the latest "long term support" release.
and do we really still need kde3 in intrepid?

no, probably not -- why do you ask? do you want to support third party kde
repositorys as well?
