This would bump the KDE macros API to 3 and force a rebuild of all KDE apps. I propose this is done before KDE 4.3 final hits.

Macros

Currently, the macros for KDE packaging are basic and still need directories appended to them constantly for files in KDE packages. Here is a table of the current macros provided:

Macro Definition Path Notes
%{_kde4_prefix} %{_prefix} /usr
%{_kde4_sysconfdir} %{_sysconfdir} /etc
%{_kde4_libdir} %{_libdir} /usr/lib[64]
%{_kde4_libexecdir} %{_libexecdir}/kde4 /usr/libexec/kde4
%{_kde4_datadir} %{_datadir} /usr/share
%{_kde4_sharedir} %{_datadir} /usr/share Why duplicate %{_kde4_datadir}?
%{_kde4_iconsdir} %{_kde4_sharedir}/icons /usr/share/icons
%{_kde4_configdir} %{_kde4_sharedir}/config /usr/share/config
%{_kde4_appsdir} %{_kde4_sharedir}/kde4/apps /usr/share/kde4/apps
%{_kde4_docdir} /usr/share/doc /usr/share/doc Why is the definition not using a macro?
%{_kde4_bindir} %{_kde4_prefix}/bin /usr/bin Not %{_bindir}?
%{_kde4_sbindir} %{_kde4_prefix}/sbin /usr/sbin Not %{_sbindir}
%{_kde4_includedir} %{_kde4_prefix}/include/kde4 /usr/include/kde4 Not %{_includedir}/kde4 ?

There are many directories that appear over and over in packaging KDE applications and libraries.

Directory Use Proposed Macro Urgency Reason
%{_kde4_docdir}/HTML/en HTML/API documentation %{_kde4_htmldocdir} medium Used mostly for
%{_kde4_datadir}/mime/packages xdg shared-mime-info standard files %{_kde4_mimedir} high Mimetype directory (xdg)
%{_kde4_datadir}/applications/kde4 .desktop files for applications high All applications need a .desktop file here
%{_kde4_configdir}.kcfg KCFG files %{_kde4_kcfgdir} high Most applications use KCFG for configuration
%{_kde4_libdir}/kde4 KPlugin libraries %{_kde4_plugindir} high Directory for KPlugin libraries
%{_kde4_datadir}/kde4/services services for KDE apps (plugin metadata) %{_kde4_servicesdir} high Directory for KPlugin metadata
%{_kde4_datadir}/kde4/servicetypes specs for types of services %{_kde4_servicetypesdir} high Directory for KPlugin metadata
%{_kde4_datadir}/dbus-1/interfaces DBus interface declarations %{_kde4_dbusifacedir} low Used outside KDE as well
%{_kde4_datadir}/dbus-1/services DBus services %{_kde4_dbusservicedir} low Used outside KDE as well
%{_kde4_sysconfdir}/kde/env scripts for user login/creation low Not used often
%{_kde4_sysconfdir}/kde/shutdown scripts to run on user logout low Not used often
%{_kde4_appsdir}/kconf_update kconf update scripts %{_kde4_kconfdir} low Not used often; kconf is known to not work 100% anyways
%{_kde4_datadir}/autostart session start .desktop files low Not used often
%{_kde4_datadir}/sounds sounds (notifications) %{_kde4_sounddir} medium Convenience; kde-look packages mainly
%{_kde4_datadir}/mimelnk KDE3 mime data low KDE3; why do KDE4 apps still use this?
${_kde4_datadir}/applnk unused? low Looks mostly unused, delete it?
%{_kde4_datadir}/emoticons emoticon directory %{_kde4_emoticondir} medium Conveneince; kde-look packages mainly
%{_kde4_datadir}/templates templates directory %{_kde4_templatedir} medium Convenience; kde-look packages mainly

This would bump the KDE macros API to 3 and force a rebuild of all KDE apps. I propose this is done before KDE 4.3 final hits.

Note: The meeting on 2009-06-23 has this as an agenda meeting item. Discussion about this should probably be the main point, with details of the macros and definitions on #fedora-kde. Unfortunately, I will not be available for the meeting due to summer work schedule. Mathstuf
