Or in other words: the date that we plan to (pre)announce our efforts to remove Qt4 from Jessie+1.
I have already wrote a sketch for the announce in gobby Teams/KDE/Qt4 under "Qt 4 removal in Jessie+1" We still have quite some time to do the removal, but I liked the idea that the RT used for the freeze: announce it with enough time. Using what I learned from the Qt3 removal: - We will not have upstream support for Qt4 in Jessie+1 as the end of support if planned at some point of 2014. - Porting Qt4 stuff to Qt5 is easier that it was to port Qt3 stuff to Qt4. Take a look at <http://qt-project.org/wiki/Transition_from_Qt_4.x_to_Qt5> and the links listed in "Recommended Reading" at the bottom of that page. - Porting needs time, the fastest we give access to Qt5 in stable the better. That's why I started pushing Qt5 backports for Wheezy. So here is my plan: - Provide a Wheezy backport: already happening. - 2014/11/06: mail debian-devel-announce with text in Gobby (please please please check/edit/etc) - As soon as we release Jessie: send the mass bug filling mail to debian- devel, proceed with them. Even maybe given some certain (or not) dates. Any thoughs will be kindly appreciated.
