Hate to bring this thread back up, but it's not that old ;)

I hate kdesupport! There's nothing worse than not knowing what version 
something depends on or what version you're even installing! I don't think I'd 
be able to look at kdesupport and get a dependency list out of their svn set 
up...Tagged releases make life a lot easier -  I can't remember what package I 
came across, but they said use the latest git master, of course that blew up 
in my face and I doubt that any projects using said project are going to 
document what git master they pulled to build... Arg... While I'm ranting here 
I'll just throw out redland and anyone who builds kde from source will 
probably just chuckle.
