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 kio_file KIO Framework ?? currently in kdelibs/kioslave
IN PROGRESS kio_ftp KIO Framework ?? currently in kdelibs/kioslave
IN PROGRESS kio_http KIO Framework ?? currently in kdelibs/kioslave
IN PROGRESS kio_metainfo KIO Framework ?? currently in kdelibs/kioslave
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 Emoticons framework ?? alternatively, could go into 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 kdeeject ?? ?? research what uses it; can it be removed altogether?
IN PROGRESS kde4-menu ?? ?? deprecate/remove
IN PROGRESS kdesu ?? ??
IN PROGRESS kdontchangethehostname kded ?? deprecate the binary, move it into kded
IN PROGRESS keditfiletype kded ?? library support; identify most appropriate framework; perhaps move into a "KDE cli" repository?
IN PROGRESS kcm_keditfiletype kde-workspace ??
IN PROGRESS kfile4 kde-kdeutils? ?? another candidate for a "KDE cli" repo?
IN PROGRESS kglobalaccel ?? ?? whatever framework the global accel classes go into
IN PROGRESS kiconfinder ?? ?? kdesdk, "KDE cli" repo, or just drop; hard to say what its value really is
IN PROGRESS kioclient ?? ?? a user tool, so "KDE cli" repo
IN PROGRESS kioexec KIO Framework ??
IN PROGRESS kio_about kde-baseapps ?? used by konqueror, move it there
IN PROGRESS kio_applications kde-workspace ??
IN PROGRESS kio_archive ?? ?? in theory belongs with libkarchive topically, but has kio dependency
IN PROGRESS kio_bookmarks kde-baseapps ?? used by konqueror, move it there
IN PROGRESS kio_cgi kdesdk ??
IN PROGRESS kio_desktop kde-baseapps ?? used by konq, dolpin, folderview; Plasma Workspaces is working on deprecating it
IN PROGRESS khelpcenter ?? ?? needs a replacement app
IN PROGRESS kdeui/about ?? ?? replacement with QML, put into KDE App solution
IN PROGRESS keditfiletype ?? ?? research replacement
