Ciaran,

as you know the only people that used kdebuild-1 were the ones using the
KDE overlay to track live ebuilds. Even though Wulf has recently showed
that some people are still trying to sync from his box (even though the
git repo was removed more than 2 weeks ago), the vast majority has
either switched to one of the methods currently supported by the KDE
team or has decided to move to exheres (and thus exherbo). In any case,
it was used in an overlay, following an unapproved spec that was only
supported by a single PM - which is not the official Gentoo PM.
It's surprising that people wanting to follow live ebuilds are still
trying to sync from a repo that stopped actively following upstream
quite some time ago - long before the repo was deleted. It would be
useful to have an idea of many users we're talking about, but given the
former, I have a hard time believing the number of users is large.
