Because it seems like a useful tool, and KDE:Extra is a pretty
standard repo for KDE users on openSUSE.  If someone wants to submit
it to one of the gnome repos as well, they can do so.  KDE:Extra has a
number of applications with both Gnome and KDE guis, if I recall

One advantage of having it in the KDE:Extra repo is that it is
properly built against the different versions of KDE that are
available (often as many as 5 or 6 different versions) and the proper
version of Qt (usually only 1 or 2 versions), while packman is only
built against the default version.  I am not sure this is as much of
an issue currently with gnome, although it may become one with the
coming changes in Gnome.
