package splitting:

  • SebastianVahl proposed a splitting of KDE packages as a possible Feature for F13.
  • Splits could be done on a per-app basis or a split out of the "popular" packages.
  • First pros/cons were discussed in the meeting:
    • more control over the installed packages (+)
    • better support for a minimal runtime for small targets (like netbooks) (+)
    • huge increase of metadata to download (--)
    • more work for packagers (-)
    • more complexity for users (-)
  • SebastianVahl will prepare a wiki page with pros/cons and a documentation of the splitting already done as a basis for further discussions.
