ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5214

virtualbox-kde-runner and plasma-runner-virtualbox is (imho) the same piece of software, even with the same version number
You are right. "plasma-runner-virtualbox" package was intended to replace virtualbox-kde-runner, but for some reason the latter was not dropped from repositories.
We don't drop packages from repositories marked as "release", so virtualbox-kde-runner will be left in contrib/release of rosa2014.1 platform forever. But we have detached it from repositories in ABF (our build system), so nobody will be able do build it and publish to official repositories anymore. And if somebody will try to explicit install it and type "urpmi virtualbox-kde-runner" then plasma-runner-virtualbox will be installed instead.
