@non devs
Please refrain from *any* discussion here.

Comment 3 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2009-10-06 20:22:43 UTC

Following USE flags should me masked:
kde-base/plasma-workspace: 'google-gadgets' (does not build/install, not worthy)
kde-base/{kdeutils-meta,kdeadmin-meta}: 'cups' (printing stuff: kde-base/{printer-applet,system-config-printer-kde} not entering stable tree yet)
Comment 4 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2009-10-06 20:24:28 UTC
I think this is it, please proceed.

Comment 7 Christian Faulhammer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-10-07 07:25:12 UTC
Some packages are missing:
networkmanager >= 0.7
=kde-base/printer-applet-4.3.1 and its dependencies
Comment 8 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2009-10-07 16:13:42 UTC
As noted in #3, google-gadgets are out completely for this release.

Please mask google-gadgets USE flag for plasma-workspace-4.3.1 - x11-misc/google-gadgets should be probably masked anyway

kde-base/printer-applet and kde-base/system-config-printer-kde are not meant  for stabilization (they both work but I'm planning to introduce them when they support policykit) - should get them removed from metapackages that pull them for 'cups' USE flag or you could just mask 'cups' USE flag for <=kde-base/kdeadmin-meta-4.4.0 and <=kde-base/kdeutils-meta-4.4.0 ?

You're right with the rest (epos, indilib, networkmanager) however - I'll file stabilization bugs for them. Logc4xx is disputable and 'log' USE flag should be probably masked for app-misc/strigi (all versions) - I used to have some issues with this library in the past (massive memory leaks).

I think it's safe to start even now with stabilization of: phonon, soprano qimageblitz, policykit-qt, strigi, akonadi-server as KDE4 is pretty much the only consumer of those for now in tree (so won't break anything - phonon would be the only package being used, but it's known to work with already stable consumers like x11-libs/qt-webkit)

file was right, description was typo, resubmitted to avoid confusion

In case there's any doubt here, as the KDE team Lead, I would like to request your help to get KDE-4 finally into the stable tree.

As a note, one that I was meant to sent through email a few weeks ago, we plan to mask and later remove from the tree KDE-3.5 as it stopped being maintained by upstream a *long* time ago, there's no Gentoo KDE developers concerned with it and it's starting to have security issues.
Comment 12 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2009-10-08 01:37:40 UTC
We decided to drop networkmanager support for now (can be reintroduced anytime later).

So, package.use.mask could consist (correcting my recent comment about cups):

# better to deal with this behemoth later
kde-base/plasma-workspace google-gadgets

# leaving system-config-printer-kde and printer-applet in testing
<=kde-base/kdeadmin-meta-4.3.10 cups
<=kde-base/kdeutils-meta-4.3.10 cups

# log4cxx known for memory leaks
app-misc/strigi log

# masked for users in tree (leaves it for overlay users for testing)
# and to give more time for networkmanager stabilization
<=kde-base/solid-4.3.10 networkmanager

update: kdelibs-4.3.1-r2 instead of -r1.
Comment 16 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2009-10-17 10:07:03 UTC
I am suffering bug 261446 since kde4 got stabilized for amd64, it doesn't seem to break anything (this is why I am not sure if should block this bug), but it's a bit annoying to get this errors in every emerge involving mime database update :-/
Comment 17 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2009-10-18 18:22:25 UTC
x86 stable, thanks to fauli for testing.
the following packages haven't been marked stable on x86, due to build failures. please tell me if I have to open bugs for them.
Comment 18 Anton Bolshakov 2009-10-21 07:03:08 UTC
Please add bug #286192 to the blocker list (bug #280670  has more details)
