What is the future, if any, of DeviceKit on Gentoo?
Upstream's release notes for version 003 (http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/devkit-devel/2009-March/000123.html) say, "This is probably the last release of DeviceKit. The functionality of DeviceKit is going to be merged into the udev-extras with the only changes being the D-Bus name as well as the prefix for the GObject library and the command line tool."
Latest version of sys-fs/udev in ~x86 is 135-r4, but latest on kernel.org is 140. Does anyone know if that latest version obviates the need for DeviceKit on Gentoo?

This ebuild has been added to the GNOME overlay, and will be a part of GNOME 2.26 when it hits tree
This bug is essentially fixed per previous comment.
What about KDE users? And a migration guide?

There's nothing to migrate, devicekit was essentially stateless (it just forwarded udev events on the system bus).
