kde-fedora is where packages are built for kde and go through a testing phase.
It's a bit like running a stable f11 with a rawhide kde, except that you can
choose which level you want to work at. I have one system that has both the
unstable and unstable-testing enabled. Packages that behave well and cause ew
problems go into the main fedora repo shortly after, so you are not missing

The kde-fedora repo has little to do with your aspell problem. As has been
explained, the developer decided against putting a dictionary into the
package. Now that may look nonsense to you, but to the rest of the world
having an en-US dictionary installed is not helpful. :-)

If you feel that the developer made a wrong decision, by all means tell him so
in bugzilla, but as I said, think about the rest of us. As long as it is
documented that you have to install dictionaries, and it is, I personally
think that's OK. I don't actually remember doing it, but obviously I must
have seen the documentation and done it, since it is working fine.
