In-person meeting cancelled due to global pandemic.

Sprint Schedule

April 4/5, 2019


Proposed topics, roughly grouped by scope. Feel free to extend and regroup this.

General project stuff

  • How can we get all of kde/pim migrated to gitlab? (Allen)
  • Did the bi-monthly summary blog approach we tried over the last year work out and should we continue with this? (Volker)
  • Should we phase out the Kolab resource in favor of IMAP+DAV, and if so, how can we do that practically? (Volker)
  • [DONE] Progress of frameworkification, is KDAV ready to go, which framework is next after that? (Volker)


  • [DONE] The use of KParts in kdepim (with some KF6 changes in mind) (David)
  • KF6/Qt6: anything problematic or anything larger to do in PIM or "our" frameworks? The Kross usage in accountwizard comes to mind. (Volker)

Larger reviews

  • Review and finalize the API of Nicolas' platform calendar access abstraction. (Volker)
  • Review the KUserFeedback usage for 20.04 (Volker)

Specific bugs

  • KOrganizer: can't modify item immediately after creating it (bug 407965) (David)
  • Deleting multiple emails really fast leads to some of them being stuck in "about to be deleted" state (David)
  • Deleting emails while the inbox is sync'ed leads to emails reappearing before disappearing again (David)
  • Finding out why kmail often shows "This message is encrypted" erroneously (David)
  • Finding out why contact completion/search doesn't find some contacts (David)


  • KDAV: David and ervin agree with the move, ervin will do another API review
  • Frameworkification:
    • kgapi - this is used externally AFAIK, so it might be worth moving? Dan?
    • the entire set of email libs - lots of work, does anyone externally need those right now?
  • KParts usage:
    • dfaure: lxr reminded me that kdepim uses KParts for embedding into kontact. I just had a deeper look, and it actually makes sense (KParts is basically a plugin mechanism with a widget() method, a XMLGuiClient+actionCollection for actions, and a KAboutData, all of which make sense in kontact).
    • The plan however is to port from KParts::ReadOnlyPart to KParts::Part and to move parts to kf5/parts/ subdir so that the new KParts::PartLoader can be used.
