Hi everyone! I would like to do a brief status of Qt's packaging for Jessie.
First of all, I would like to let you know that I'm finding myself without the necessary time to tackle all that's necessary for Jessie. I'm doing my best but I don't think I'll make it alone. Dmitry Schanev (mitya57) has been helping me **a lot** but he is currently unavailable. Kudos to him for all the hard work he has been putting on this. = pkg-kde-tools We really need to do some bug triaging, specially for a multiarch wishlist bug, but IIRC there are some other bugs which could be easily solved and would help porters with their work. = Qt4 The most important thing here is currently webkit. We have RC bug #746907 which I think could be solved with Andreas Cord-Landwehr (CoLa) patches for getting a new version in .  <https://github.com/cordlandwehr/qtwebkit-debian/tree/webkit-2.3.2> After that we really need to redo a round of bug triaging. = Qt5 (all what I'm writing here is also qtbase can use journald support, but it was not enough to jsut add the build dependencies. It needs checking (maybe a compiler flag?) qtdeclarative is currently building with SSE2 stuff enabled, else the V4 stuff will not work. Non the less there is the chance to get all the rest built without SSE2 and provide both builds in the same package. This has been already discussed both upstream and team-wide and it's doable, but we require man power to make it real. I have some more info and Thiago Maciera's recommendations for doing it, just ping me if you plan to stand-up for this one. For qttools we need to get #749336 solved And we need to get qtenginio and qtwebsockets packaged and in the archive with time. qtwebsocket already has a repo in git.debian.org with some initial packaging by Dmitry, I couldn't take a look on it so far. qtenginio needs packaging from scratch. In qtmultimedia we are currently using a hammer-like patch to let it build on Hurd: if we do not detect v4l's headers we don't build gstreamer support. I'm currently working on detecting v4l and only avoiding to build stuff that depends on it. I'll surely make my patches as public work in progress to Qt- project's gerrit in a few hours. If someone wants to help with this one, just ping me and I'll pass the necessary links. = Backporting Finally we have people working on backporting Qt4 and Qt5 to wheezy. We really want to this to happen if we plan to get rid of Qt4 for Jessie+1, or at least try it. I'm surely forgetting more stuff, but the most important thing is we can do with some help. Thanks, Lisandro. -- http://www.phdcomics.com/comics/archive.php?comicid=56 Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer http://perezmeyer.com.ar/ http://perezmeyer.blogspot.com/
