We are currently dual maintaining bindings for KDE3 and KDE4 for Kubuntu. It would be nice to drop the KDE3 bindings sooner rather than later and they have very few reverse depends or build-dep.
I have included the people in Ubuntu/Kubuntu who have mostly been dealing with the packages in question. In the case of spl and soundkonverter, that's the Debian Maintainer (I believe that Debian will face this same question as soon as Lenny is released). Here's what I find in Jaunty (the current Ubuntu development release) at present (note: this is not based on a deep understanding of each package - I only had time to scratch the surface, so please correct me where I'm wrong): reverse-build-depends libsmokeqt-dev spl - Builds a spl-kde binary. It appears that neither of the spl-dev reverse build-depends use the KDE bindings. My proposal would be to simply drop the KDE bindings if there is not an update to KDE4 bindings when we're ready to remove the package. python-dcop Reverse Depends: screenlets emesene Both of these are just suggests. Is there any real harm for these packages if python-dcop goes away? libkorundum0-ruby1.8 Reverse Depends: kita2 Is there a plan to transition this to libkorundum4-ruby1.8? This looks like a package that actually needs the bindings from KDE3 for now. Is upstream working on porting it? libqt0-ruby1.8 Reverse Depends: amarok-common/amarok - This goes away once we move the amarok package to amarok 2, right? soundkonverter-amarok - Once we switch to amarok 2, I'm guessing this will need to be ported to libqt4-ruby1.8? I see upstream says a KDE4 version of soundkonverter is in progress, but gives no schedule. Looking this over, it seems to me that kita2 is the only major roadblock to removing kdebindings for KDE3 entirely once the transition to amarok2 is complete. Is that correct? Scott K
