Some packages (kdebase3-runtime, kdelibs3 etc) are still in the official
repo they are in fact copyed from KDE:KDE3 repository. When
KDE3 was the official part of OpenSUSE the KDE3 packages were also 
copied from the KDE:KDE3 repo which existed always and included slightly more
packages than the official OpenSUSE repo. So OpenSUSE always included
a subset of KDE:KDE3.

There are no conflicts. The packages in OpenSUSE=the packages in KDE:KDE3
by the date of OpenSUSE feature freeze.

It always was there. And I am now one of those maintainers, I do with KDE3 
repository whatever I want and this goes directly to OpenSUSE main repo
in the case the packages in question were not yet dropped from OpenSUSE.

But some people say you broke the file manager so it is not as good as Konq in 
KDE3 was.
