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

Status Component Destination Migrator Comments
DONE kactivitymanager kactivities Ivan Cukic
TODO Attica KDE Plugin libattica ?? Still used by knewstuff
TODO Attica kcm ?? ?? Still used by knewstuff
DONE cmake nothing to do
TODO desktoptheme libplasma2 Aaron Seigo
IN PROGRESS drkonqi ?? mgraesslin Port to KF 5 working. Bug reporting missing. kde4support to be removed, KIcon -> QIcon then move to KCrash framework.
IN PROGRESS kcmshell ?? mmartin, JRiddell Port to KF 5 done. Belongs with a Solutions framework.
TODO kcm_componentchooser kde-workspace ??
TODO kcm_dnssd kde-workspace ??
TODO kcm_emoticons Emoticons framework ?? alternatively, could go into kde-workspace
IN PROGRESS kcm_icons kde-workspace JRiddell Port to KF 5 working
TODO kcm_kded kde-workspace ?? perhaps merge (in part / whole) into kinfocenter
TODO kcm_knotify KDE Notifications Frameworks ?? will probably require a rework; reference the KDE Notifications framework effort
IN PROGRESS kcm_locale kde-workspace Sebas K kdelibs should integrate with workspace being run in, klocale would be used to customize that from within a Plasma Workspace. some kde4support to go
TODO kcontrol/menus kinfocenter? ?? research what uses this category, move it there
TODO kcontrol/spellchecking sonnet ??
TODO kde4 script ?? ?? it's a barebones version of a script used in KApplication; should end up wherever KApplication does

IN PROGRESS kioclient ?? ?? kf5 port done. the same code gets compiled into several different binaries, is this sensible? a user tool, so "KDE cli" repo
