Meeting Time


  • KevinKofler
  • PavelShevchuk (Stalwart)
  • RexDieter
  • SebastianVahl
  • ThanNgo




gcc 4.3 and KDE 4:

  • according to upstream gcc 4.3 could miscompile kde4 and may produce unusable kde4 applications
  • we have to find out when gcc-4.3 is actually hitting rawhide
  • after that is done we have to rebuild all packages to figure out the problems and fill bugs

development progress: the road to kde4:

  • only kdeadmin is left from the normal packages
  • kde-l10n will maybe finished by ThanNgo tomorrow
  • KevinKofler suggested to eventually drop most of kdebase3-devel which isn't useful anymore
  • review for extragear-plasma is still ongoing and will be updated to 3.97.0 by SebastianVahl
  • it will also obsolete kdeaddons since most of the packages/functions are now in extragear-plasma

extragear packaging:

  • It would be good to package some modules from extragear which were in the base packages in KDE3:
  • extragear-base (all of it, or all that works, it's Konqueror plugins)
  • extragear-graphics: at least kiconedit and kcoloredit
  • extragear-multimedia: at least kmid and kaudiocreator
  • pim/ksig
  • if more than one app is in an extragear module it should be named like the module (e.g. extragear-multimedia)
  • packaging extragear modules won't get our primary attention. We should send a mail to fedora-devel-list with a list of the now missing apps from the base distribution and seek for maintainers who package them from extragear

/usr/share/doc/HTML/en/common and kdelibs3:

  • kdelibs3 is now missing some things which are in kdelibs
  • we will prepare a kdelibs-common package (from kdelibs(4)) which is required by kdelibs3 and kdelibs
