I'd try to work out something with upstream that they maybe announce a new 
testing snapshot in that directory. Someone said other distros are using it, 
so you can't be alone in wanting some feedback on when you can test a 
new "release". Somehow I'd think we need to account for that location as the 
pickup point inside the specfile so others know where this came from.

That depends on if a new kdepim package suddenly quits working for me in 
F8.  :)
