I should have been more specific. Can Active be installed and co exist
with a regular STABLE Plasma install ? I'd like to enable testing for
only the Active install. Is that possible ?

Beautiful functionality !

Minimal setup is simply:
yum install startactive
How would this be done for the testing repository while
Plasma from stable and not having dependency version issues ?
optional addons include:
yum install contour share-like-connect plasma-active-wallpapers

uninstall the list of packages from previous step.
Again, from the point of view of having Active come from testing and
keeping the rest of Plasma from stable ?
If one gets Plasma in totality from testing to handle the Active
dependencies, what would be an easy way to uninstall Active and roll
Plasma back to the latest version that is in stable ?
I don't mean to be a wuss, but I'd like to test Active on production
machines. I'm OK with having issues while running testing versions of
Active and Plasma but I need to be able to roll back to Plasma stable at
the end of it all if it doesn't work out.
Other than that, this is hugely big news. I doubt very many people are
aware of Active being available like this.
