Hi, I'm preparing DigiKam 4.x packages for Debian. While I've used KDE for ages, I'm new to the development side, so I have a couple questions.
The previous Debian package was DigiKam 4.4. I just created an initial 4.14 package. Between 4.4 and 4.14, several "extra" libraries were split out and are no longer distributed in the digikam source: libkdcraw libkexiv2 libkface libkgeomap libkipi libksane libkvkontakte libmediawiki. Several of these are already packaged in Debian and I just used them in the build. Others are not yet packaged for Debian (e.g. libkgeomap and libkface) so I had to drop functionality temporarily. Now I'm looking for the canonical source location of these former "extras". Question 1: Given that I'm building DigiKam 4.x, I presume I'll need a KDE4/Qt4 version of each extra. Is that the case? The first place I found was https://www.digikam.org/sharedlibs where I can find links some of these extras, including kface and geomap. The kface link takes me to https://projects.kde.org/projects/kde/kdegraphics/libs/libkface/repository but here the latest commit is March 2015. The geomap link has bitrotted and brings up a 404. Next, I found http://download.kde.org/stable/applications/15.12.0/src/ which has kface and geomanip. Debian has an "experimental" package for kface that is version 15.04.0, built against KDE4/Qt4. The new 15.12 version builds against KF5 and Qt5. The geomap v15.12 sources also build against KF5. Question 2: If I can't use the latest kface, should I just go backwards in time to find the last release using KDE4 and use that with DigiKam? Thanks, -Steve
