revisit KDE 4.3 feature page:

  • In official KDE 4.3 announcement the feature of using Google Calendar in KOrganizer was promoted.
  • But the corresponding googledata package wasn't released as an Extragear package and only exists in KDE's svn.
  • To use the feature someone has to package it for Fedora when a tarball is released.
  • Until then this will be removed from the feature page.

  • Over the weekend there were a large discussion about a new design for
  • MáirínDuffy requested our goals for such a design. So we should take this to the fedora-kde mailinglist.
  • Additionally an own subdomain for our KDE spin would be interesting.
  • StephenParrish will contact Fedora Board to get a subdomain up.

KDE 4.3.1:

  • KDE 4.3.1 will be tagged on Aug 27.
  • ThanNgo will prepare the packages for Rawhide.
  • LukasTinkl will take care of the updates for F-11 and F-10.
  • SebastianVahl will build the corresponding Extragear packages.


  • phonon-backend-gstreamer was added as default phonon backend in Rawhide.
  • Until now there were no negative feedback.
  • The warning about the default setup (pulseaudio) should be fixed now.

Must-fix bugs for F12:

  • #515539 - prelink: process for the fileprotocol / desktop protocol died unexpectedly
    • It's still unclear what causes this problems and they will need further attention.
  • #499968 - PolicyKit 1 authentication issues with KPackageKit
    • gnome-authentification-agent could be used with KPackageKit.
    • A new svn release of PackageKit in rawhide should fix the errors KPackageKit is having.
    • StephenParrish will build a new KPackageKit snapshot which should fix some of the regressions.
