14.12 will be created from master, yes.

You are right, master has to be based on KF5 if you want 14.12 to be KF5 
based.

I'm just undecided that we need to grant an exception here given that "it's 
the same thing" for the user since it's just a port (i.e. doesn't have new 
features the user would want).

On the other hand the sooner we get a KF5 port released the sooner it'll be 
ironed out.

So i'd say go for it and merge it if you are *really*  *really*  *really*  
*really*  sure it's worth it.

And please do it before the next 24 hours, since otherwise all the other

Kig Master Branch for KDE 14.12

Hi,

While going through my checklist for 14.12 readiness, I totally forgot
the obvious: merge the frameworks branch into master. I remembered
that now that the freeze is in place, so I am wondering if I can get a
last minute chance to merge my frameworks branch if the 14.12 branches
have not yet been created.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

dolphin for 14.12 release

Hey Emmanuel,

Looking at https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Application-release-status-December-2014#Applications_which_will_release_their_first_stable_Qt5.2BKF5-based_version_in_December_2014
it seems dolphin is still undecided, but the date has past for
feature, string freeze. Please make sure master branch of dolphin is
qt4 based still for the upcoming release and move Dolphin from the
undecided section there to the qt4 based section. (or if you already
merged the frameworks based code to master branch, move it to the kf5
based section there).

thanks,
Jeremy

Baloo, Baloo-widgets in KDE Applications 14.12 vs Plasma 5.1

I just realized we have this situation:

 * Plasma 5.1 released baloo from master (kf5 based)
 * baloo-widgets master (kf5 based) is unreleased

Is anyone neededing baloo-widgets kf5 in this release?

kde-build-metadata tells me only kde-baseapps uses baloo-widgets which is good 
since kde-baseapps is not kf5 based yet.

The question then is, what do i do with baloo and baloo-widgets in the KDE 
Applications 14.12 release?

Shipping the kf5 version seems fighting with the Plasma 5.1 release, so that's 
not good.

So i guess we either ship a kdelibs4 version or simply don't ship it at all 
and people use the 4.14.x one.

Opinions?

Cheers,
  Albert

Re: kde-baseapps

Please *never* drop a mailing list when you started the discussion in a 
mailing list, it's bad manners.

Dolphin is maintained by Emmanuel Pescosta, you can email him (not sure if 
Dolphin as a mailing list for development).

Cheers,
  Albert

kde-baseapps

Hi,

The page
https://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Release_Team#Coordinator_List
says you help need for kde-baseapps. Well, I want to do some improvements on this module. How should I talk to?

Qt 5.4 for Plasma 5.2

Qt 5.4 is due to be released sometime soon.  Plasma 5.2 is due to be released in January.

Plasma devs only want to support one version of Qt.  There would be a few useful features in Qt 5.4 that Plasma
could use but we could also hang back with Qt 5.3 if distros needed it.

Would it be a problem to need Qt 5.4 in Plasma 5.2?

The "why" was because that dir was also used by kde3, and kde4 
introduced various conflicts.  off the top of my head (it's been 
awhile), there were at least 2... kate and khtml

As to how it's implemented, on fedora at least, we build all kde4 
packages with a standard set of build flags, one of which is:
-DDATA_INSTALL_DIR:PATH=/usr/share/kde4/apps
I believe other distros follow a similar convention here, and probably 
for similar reason(s).

KDE4 and new featues

Hi, I was asked to backport an updated KIO nfs module that I have been working on for KF5 (review request: https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/120343/). I was wondering if KDE4 still accepts new features (this would probably count as a new feature), and if it is, should I create a new review request with the backported code?
