patch to add #include <limits>

Similar to other missing <limits> reports for qtcore and other packages bug #752012

Need to include limits.h with gcc11 in des.cpp. Patch attached. 

FWIW  only kde package I found with this issue.
Comment 1 Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2021-01-22 06:23:17 UTC
submitted upstream?
Comment 2 Geoff Leach 2021-01-22 09:12:08 UTC
I haven't, but should, and will, or at least investigate if already taken care of :)

I'm pretty sure they'd know about it and trivial to fix, and Andy in bug #752012 said he has reported same issue with patch upstream

Was more if gentooers hit the issue ...
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2021-01-23 18:00:21 UTC
In general, please always attach a build.log.

Fedora does the same:

Let's be better citizens and submit this patch upstream.

Geoff, kio upstream repository is here:
Comment 4 Geoff Leach 2021-01-24 03:53:52 UTC
ok, ok, thanks for pointing and prompting :)

issue raised and merge request submitted upstream - will put link here when shows up
Comment 5 Geoff Leach 2021-01-24 04:05:02 UTC
Here's the issue report

Turns out creating a merge request will take longer, can't just email them :)

Comment 8 Geoff Leach 2021-03-15 11:18:40 UTC
Unfortunately  upstream #include order not quite right, and so problem persists in kio-5.80.
Comment 9 Geoff Leach 2021-03-15 12:34:28 UTC
Created attachment 691578 [details, diff]
updated patch for kio-5.80.1
Comment 10 Geoff Leach 2021-03-15 12:42:03 UTC
reopened and fixed upstream

Hmm. Not sure if better to close when upstream updates or  after new version with fix is out. I've seen both :)
