Thanks you all for the feedback! Having KDE at that guesstimate of june/july 2016 is actually quite good, although it would have been better sooner for other non-KDE stuff to follow. Anyways good news :) Does any of you think of any way to gently push people to port their stuff to Qt5 without calling it a "removal" at once? I do understand that we might not be able to remove Qt4, but I *think* we should start pushing it somehow. I'm open to other ideas :) -- Antiguo proverbio de El Machi: "Dado el apropiado grado de profundidad, la ineptitud es indistinguible del sabotaje" Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer http://perezmeyer.com.ar/ http://perezmeyer.blogspot.com/
