Repos WITHOUT frameworks branch


  • Question: Do we need this or Qt5 accessibility is all we need in this regard?



Frontend for remote controls


Utility to assist with bulk file renaming

  • Who do we ask if they want to port it?
    • [scarpino] I can do the port if none step up.


Tool to check the current status of links in a web page

  • Who do we ask if they want to port it?
    • [cfeck] As far as I remember, the original author (Paulo) was interested to do (or help with) the port

Repos WITH frameworks branch


Music player

  • Who do we ask if they want to port it?
    • mpyne reached out to, imported it as "frameworks" and started cleaning it.


  • What is the status?
    • [mrnhmath] unfinished, some work done


  • What is the status?
    • [tosky] mostly working, requires some testing from people who used it more than me; a lot of kdelibs4support to be removed, but not a blocker


  • Master branch is KF5-based as of now, needs testing
    • Past discussion about the stability of QtSpeech: discussed on the distribution list; apparently going stable with Qt 5.10.


  • What is the status?
    • [tosky] it seems to be working; Frederik Schwarzer expressed some concerns while reviewing kdelibs4-based games about the embedded copy of Box2D, maybe it can be removed, but maybe it's not a blocker for merging frameworks into master.


  • for some reason branch is called kf5
  • What is the status?


  • for some reason branch is called kf5
  • What is the status?
    • [tosky] mostly working, but requires more restesting; there is a pending patch for musicbrainz5 support, which is not strictly a blocker, but it should be cleaned (some cmake files can be rewritten in a simpler way, or reimported from their newer versions, or shared):


  • Master branch is KF5-based as of now, needs testing


  • What is the status?
    • [tosky] it starts, but tiles are not loaded; debug needed
      • [stikonas] one of the problems is due to the use of palapeli:// prefixes for file locations. QStandardPaths wouldn't work with it. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be the only problem, I still wasn't able to get it to slice puzzles after I removed those.
    • [stikonas] It starts now and tiles are loaded.
    • issues solved, frameworks was merged into master on September 1st


  • What is the status?

One review is open (, after that the frameworks branch should be ready for merging into master.

Frameworks branch was merged to master on 26 Aug.


  • What is the status?
    • [tosky] Found a way to test thanks to avahi-publish (zeroconf-ioslave recognizes webdav, ssh, sftp, ftp, and nfs).
    • frameworks merged into master on August 28th.

Weird repos


KF5 is in master but not default

  • Can we make KF5 default?
    • [tosky] a lot of work went into the pure KF5 branch ("frameworks") lately. With the last fixes by Jonathan Marten it should work; testing needed.
    • [asturm] long-term testing (alsa, no pulseaudio) has revealed no issues for me.


KF5 is in master, but also has kdelibs4 code

  • Can we remove kdelibs4 code?
