Perhaps I don't understand the question, but the packages in the
module are pointing at the master branch, so whatever is in there is
what get's built.
If you mean, what if we're in the middle of a plasma/qt5/kf5 update
and it tries to build that? Or people use that?
Once the module is building properly, I plan on rebuilding it only
once a month. This is mainly due to the EPEL two week waiting/testing
process, which often takes more than two weeks.
I figure at once a month, if it looks like someone is in the middle of
updating a portion, I'll just wait. A few days here or there won't
delay too much.
If it's something else that you meant, then I missed it.
Nah, you covered it. :)
