The kdepimlibs specific policies are: Modules that use qt3support are to be removed Deprecated API is allowed to be removed Source compatibility requirements are relaxed due to fewer clients, but major rewrites are discouraged. Instead port the old library and create a separate new library (e.g. KHolidays and QHolidays). Most libraries will aim for Tier 2, but some may be able to target Tier 1. The initial KF5 port may rely on kde4support to enable the port to be performed by non-experts, but no Framework released may rely on kde4support so the maintainer must remove all usage. In particular all KDateTime, KTimeZone and KLocale usage must be removed and the Qt replacements throughly tested for regressions and behaviour changes. Priorities The following libraries are known to be used outside of KDE PIM and so may be a higher priority in porting. kde-workspace Usage: kde-workspace/libs/plasmaclock/ KHolidays (for selection widget, could be moved elsewhere?) kde-workspace/plasma/generic/dataengines/akonadi/ Akonadi KMime KABC Microblog KPimUtils (linked but not included?) kde-workspace/plasma/generic/dataengines/calendar/ Akonadi KCalCore KCalUtils KHolidays kde-workspace/plasma/generic/dataengines/rss/ Syndication Note: It is recommended that the Akonadi DataEngine be reworked/renamed as EMailEngine, ToDoEngine, etc, as this is client developer facing API and so the implementation name should be abstracted/hidden from them, i.e. as is done with the CalendarEngine. kde-runtime Usage: kde-runtime/drkonqi/ KXMLRPCClient kde-runtime/kwalletd QGpgme kdeplasma-addons Usages: kdeplasma-addons/libs/lancelot-datamodel Akonadi - for email support kdeplasma-addons/runners/contacts Akonadi KABC kdeplasma-addons/runners/events Akonadi KCalCore Kolab WIP.
