firstly thanks for your answer and questions.

No Problem. Nevertheless as the developer (as you already disvovered) I want
to list a few features, which might be interesting:
- Platform independent possible to use KDE features, without changing the
application using libengsas for every platform
- Improved qt plugin loading (Loader for plugins of any type with status
information in a dialog)
- Many SQL-related features
- Schema definition which allows creating and updating of database with a
- Schema independent and only qt based database backup wizard for any
kind of sql (or at least mysql) databases, without any configuring
- Qt based sql query thread
Now after the advertising, back to your questions ;-)

There is already an application using libengsas. It's called Meganizer (s.
) and is a platform independent media organizer (a little bit like
tellico). It is also already packaged (s. ), but not nearly lintian clean.
> - How stable the API is?
The API is not that stable right now, but we are backporting everything
possible to the 0 API version, which does not affect the API. So e. g. the
current version of Meganizer is using the 0 API.

Your absolutly right. I'm a beginner in packaging. But to package Meganizer,
it is needed to package libengsas first ;-) Actually, I have done my first
packaging steps with Meganizer (which, in an early version, was the source of
