No - installing single packages or package sets from updates-testing has
the potential to break things. updates-testing is all or nothing - so:
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update
This doesn't look right to me, because
1) using "... update kde*" will also pull in any dependencies that KDE
needs from updates-testing, so you don't need anything else.
2) not restricting yourself to kde* (and its dependencies) increases the
risk of a flaky system because you're updating a bunch of stuff you
don't care about. It can then be hard to back out to *not* using
updates-testing for every future update.
I used the "... update kde*" incantation and it worked fine for me.
