Are we actually supporting next and next-backports for 14.10? My
broken system makes it appear that we are not.

I suggest that we remove the notice about those in the KDE wiki, and
suggest people either use one of the ISOs for 14.10 or install Beta 1

I've never had an upgrade leave me unable to login to KDE before. Not
a good experience. I know that the next and next-backports are testing
material, so I was fairly warned. But we've run out of time to support
them, so let's cut our losses and put our energy into Vivid.
