OK, let's clear that up. The answer is "yes"

FWIW, the initial happened awhile ago (late 2010), e.g.
(website/spin site rebranding)
So, sure, we could take this opportunity to further refine things,
though not sure if that should a particular *emphasis* or not.
F20 fully updated to KDE 4.12.3-1, x86_64, NVidia GT630 graphics with
the proprietary driver.
This morning everything was working. This afternoon, after updating
KDE, I no longer have a keyboard.
The KB does work in a non-desktop console, and also under Gnome (where
I'm typing this), but in no part of KDE.
KB hardware is a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 800 connected via a USB
dongle. The mouse connects through the same dongle and is working
fine. That particular model is not listed as an option in the KDE
Settings widget, so I've been selecting "Microsoft Wireless Multimedia
This could be something silly related to evdev, but I've no idea what,
so ideas are welcome.

But in the announcement it says this will replace the KDE spin. So why are
we "replacing KDE spin" if this IS KDE?

Thanks for the pointer.
I'm pretty sure I just copyied the groups.xml stuff from what fedora was
using... way back when. That said, I don't think there's any need for
it now, so I'll look into simply removing it, and regen the repo metadata.
Is there any way of setting up a kill file in KNode?
Preferably for a particular newsgroup.
(I'm actually concerned with sci.math
which is now exceeding 95% spam, from 5 or 6 offenders.)
I looked in the KNode Handbook, but didn't see anything.

Some time ago I have reported a bug for dnf
where 'dnf grouperase <whatever>' fails without clear reason. Did some
investigation and it seems that groups.xml in RH KDE repo is different
from what I see in regular Fedora repositories.
In groups.xml from Fedora repositories, for every <group> node, there
are <id> and <name> nodes. However, in KDE repo the nodes are named
<_id> and <_name> respectively. This will cause dnf to fail as while
the xml is loaded, node names become class members and the rest of the
code relies on particular member naming.
At this stage I don't know whether it's a problem with KDE repo or
dnf, but it's worth noting that yum does not seem to suffer from
similar problem. So I'd guess dnf still has work to do before it
becomes Fedora's yum replacement.
Any ideas where this discrepancy between schema of both files might come from?
