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:

Status Component Destination Migrator Comments
DONE kactivitymanager kactivities Ivan Cukic
IN PROGRESS Attica KDE Plugin libattica ?? Dependency on kconfig, port to secret service
IN PROGRESS Attica kcm ?? ??
IN PROGRESS dekstoptheme libplasma2 Aaron Seigo
IN PROGRESS drkonqi ?? ?? belongs with a Solutions framework
IN PROGRESS kcmshell ?? ?? belongs with a Solutionsframework
IN PROGRESS kcm_componentchooser kde-workspace ??
IN PROGRESS kcm_dnssd kde-workspace ??
IN PROGRESS kcm_emoticons kde-workspace ??
IN PROGRESS kcm_icons kde-workspace ??
IN PROGRESS kcm_kded kde-workspace ?? perhaps merge (in part / whole) into kinfocenter
IN PROGRESS kcm_knotify KDE Notifications Frameworks ?? will probably require a rework; reference the KDE Notifications framework effort
IN PROGRESS kcm_locale kde-workspace ?? kdelibs sould integrate with workspace being run in, klocale would be used to customize that from within a Plasma Workspace
IN PROGRESS kcontrol/menus kinfocenter? ?? research what uses this category, move it there
IN PROGRESS kcontrol/spellchecking sonnet ??
IN PROGRESS kde4 script ?? ?? it's a barebones version of a script used in KApplication; should end up wherever KApplication does
IN PROGRESS khelpcenter ?? ?? needs a replacement app
IN PROGRESS kdeui/about ?? ?? replacement with QML, put into KDE App solution
IN PROGRESS keditfiletype ?? ?? research replacement
