my home project has only a dozen packages, and all are set up only to be built 
for the suse versions where they are needed.

Part of my project is updated versions of packages that exist in packman 
already, so how do i "push" those out to the actual packman repo?

The rest (namely the kmultimedia4 packages) are a workaround for the fact that 
packman does not come in flavours that use up-to-date KDE libs on older (as 
in, not the latest) suse versions...

the problem with that is, if i set packman to a lower prio than K:R:410, i get 
all the multimedia stuff in packages from K:R:410 which is patent-troll-
crippled... if i set packman to a higher prio, i get the multimedia stuff in 
packages built against KDE 4.8.5. neither is desirable.
