Frameworks/Epics/New Runtime Organization

kde-runtime reorganization epic

Important Forewords

Runtime requirements of a given Framework will be included in the Framework repository, giving people a "single tarball/repo" solution to use. Even though the runtime and libraries will be housed together, attention should still be paid to ensuring that there is a clean and well engineered split and division between the runtime and libraries. Runtime components that are supposed to be background details should not bleed through the library APIs, libraries should not have build-time dependencies on runtime components, etc.

Runtime Components Planning

Definition of done:

  • A component must be migrated to its corresponding Frameworks repository OR be merged into another approriate non-frameworks module (e.g. kde-workspace)
  • All i18n and documentation (if any) must be migrated appropriately with it
  • Has been cleared by the module maintainer that it is migrated to for inclusion

A spreadsheet was prepared of each component in kde-runtime:

Check for duplication with Plasma todo Plasma/PW2Todo

KDE Runtime should be co-installable with kdelibs4 kde-runtime. jriddell working on this. See Frameworks/Coinstallability
