  • Compiling KDE, getting dependencies is difficult
  • Setting up latest stuff is painfull (e.g. Plasma Active)
  • Getting trunk development is hard
  • Providing dependencies is a distribution's problem
  • kdesourcebuild is more and more required
  • Redmine should provide the dependencies
  • Guides for all distributions how to build KDE are outdated
  • Standard KDE way to access packages, using distribution-specific backends
  • Two problems: Getting packages, setting up development environment
  • Developing kioslaves or other stuff which needs to be installed is tricky, requires local environment paths setup or root to install modules
  • Two different target groups: People working on KDE itself, libraries, core applications, which need development versions of libraries. Second group: application developer who work with stable release versions of libraries, 3rd party developers
