    Yoper's repository seems pretty outdated....


    Firstly, I'm new to Yoper (just installed it today) and absolutely love it. Very quick, quick package installs (I came from Gentoo, to give you an idea), and it comes with just a few too many packages, but makes things very easy to do (such as connecting to a Windows shared folder).

    On to the problem...as the title states, the various yoper repositories seem really outdated and I was wondering if there's an alternate repository that I could use to get the most up-to-date packages. I see that I'm still using KDE 3.3x after updating today and Firefox 0.9x is the newest version available.

    This really worries me as these are both relatively old. Is the package list expected to be updated any time soon? Overall, I really like Yoper, but I also like bleeding edge (testing/unstable) packages. Is this at all possible with Yoper?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hmm... I've tried Yoper several times over the last few years but it didn't work so well on my machines. Looking forward to trying it again with the upcoming Yoper 3!
