During the kde-3.4.0_beta2 period I discovered a rather useful plugin for
Kate called "Kate Make Plugin", or something like that. For the kde-3.4.0
release I didn't use the split ebuilds, just did an 'emerge kde'. It seems
the kdeaddons ebuild didn't install the kate make plugin.
Note, I don't know if the kde-plugins ebuild will install it either, at the
time I used the kate-make-plugin ebuild.
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge kde-3.4.0
No make plugin installed
the "make" plugin was never added to kdeaddons/kate/Makefile.am, so it was never picked up by a "make && make install".
We happened to create split ebuilds for every single subdirectory of kdeaddons, so that plugin got included by chance... (but now we have a single ebuild including all kate plugins)
I don't know if it's not in kate/Makefile.am for a reason or by oversight, you should ask the kde people.
I'm not sure why the plugin was never added. It's not the greatest tool, imo not production ready at all, so personally i don't mind users having to go through a bit of trouble to get it.
About me: I've been a core Kate developer since the very beginning.
Question: why can't I add email@example.com in the CC list for this?
Fair enough. Thanks for the followup Anders.
(Perhaps the reason is you can't add CCs to this bugzilla unless
they have user accounts)
Anders: Think about someone creating bugzilla accounts, writing spam comments, while cc'ing others. Probably not what you want to have in your mailbox. :)
