== Participants ==
 
  
This sprint will aim to bring together developers who contribute to the KDE Platform directly, who use it in sophisticated applications, packagers of it and those involved in setting similar policies for Qt.
 
 
The proposed break down of attendees:
 
 
* 12-15 kdelibs and kdebase-runtime commiters
 
* 3-5 KDE application developers
 
* 2-3 packagers
 
* 1-2 people from the KDE Release Team
 
* 1-2 Qt representatives
 
 
making for a total of 19-27 people.

Purpose of the Sprint

To examine the current state and near future of the KDE Platform (kdelibs and kdebase-runtime), particularly as it relates to the growing usage of it in new contexts such as mobile or on Windows and MacOS and its traditional usage as a set of conveniences and consistency creators for KDE application development.

The sprint will aim to create an actionable, multi-year roadmap for kdelibs and kdebase-runtime and will examine issues of modularity, topicality and the inherent dichotomy between the KDE Platform as an application development framework (similar to Qt) and as a stand-alone platform to target (similar to, e.g. Windows, MacOS, etc.)


Topics

Note: these are simply sample topics, not final direction on what will actually be discussed. Actual topics will be generated at a pre-sprint meeting online as well as through group authorship of this section.

Modularization of KDE libraries

Alex: should IMO include not only kdelibs, but also kdesupport, kdepimlibs and kdebase libs

  • KIO - Split platform and gui parts?

Framework vs Platform

  • Qt OpenGov
  • Policy towards QtMobility
  • Geolocation

Redundancies

KLocale & co vs QLocale & co: How to act local everywhere while retaining configurability.

Moving stuff into kdelibs

  • Move libkonq or parts thereof into kdelibs?

Build Profiles

Build system

What level modularity do we want/need here ? Chances of CMake becoming the buildsystem for Qt.

QML and Javascript

Logistics

Dates

June 1/2 - 6/7

Location

Randa, Switzerland
