It's merging season here at Kubuntu.  If you find it useful I'll send
differences between our packages and Debian's highlighting anything
that might be interesting for Debian.

In our Qt package we still build QtWebkit but don't ship it (separate
source package used for that).  This is so QtAssisstant uses QtWebkit
not a basic HTML widget.

A default Trolltech.conf file is added to load the KDE plugins path by
default, this means it can find the Oxygen theme (loading a KDE
application will add this so it's only useful for non-KDE users who
load non-KDE Qt applications).

There's a couple patches from our Chinese developers including
switching to ibus support.

We build with lzma to save CD space.

We also had a patch review session with Thiago at the Ubuntu summit
and many of the patches can go upstream, some can be dropped, notes at
