KDE 3.5.8:

  • All packages are built for rawhide (kde-i18n is building right now)
  • KDE 3.5.8 will get into F8
  • Updates for F-7 and FC-6 should be ready in the next week
  • Some file lists overlaps introduced by splitting the packages into libs and extras sub-packages will be adressed by RexDieter after the meeting

KDE 4 status/update:

  • KevinKofler is committing soprano-1.95.0 for F-9 only
  • F8 is branched for KDE4-related stuff
  • KDE 3.94 (KDE4Beta3) will go into devel/F-9

/usr/share/dbus-1/interfaces ownership:

  • KDE4 seems to be the only application that uses this directory
  • the easiest solution for the moment is to have soprano own /usr/share/dbus-1/interfaces

Release notes:

  • The following things should be mentioned:
  • KDE 3.5.8 (instead of KDE 3.5.7)
  • kdepim-enterprise as a replacement of normal (but broken) kdepim
  • knetworkmanager is replaced by nm-applet as a workaround because it not building against newest NetworkManager

How to get more people involved in KDE-Sig?

  • The actual list of 16 "participants" is not really matching the few active "developers"
  • The solution for this may be:
  • Write to the listed participants and ask for more active involvement
  • ask for help on fedora-devel-ml and announce that we are going to cull down the list
  • cull down the list to the known-as-active contributors after one or two week. Leave the willing to help participants from the old list.
  • Some more things should be mentioned in the wiki before writing the announcement (i.e. bug hunters)

Should we send weekly reports to fedora-devel-ml and/or Fedora Weekly News?

  • SebastianVahl will sent weekly reports after the meetings to the fedora-devel-mailinglist

Open discussion:

  • The NetworkManager hack is only included on the live images, not the DVD
  • knetworkmanager is still not building against NetworkManager
  • knetworkmanager should maybe requested for removal from F8 until it works again
  • krusader was removed from the livecd again to free some space for nm-applet
  • It maybe could be re-added if the accident that perl is depending on db4-devel is fixed
