* development progress: the road to kde4

= Summary =

o Trolltech's Phonon GStreamer backend: 
- Trolltech has committed a GStreamer backend for phonon which will likely 
become the upstream default for kde 4.1 
- We'll have to wait until it gets usuable and use xine-lib for now 

o kdemultimedia3 compat package? 
- at least taxipilot is relying on aRts-related libraries provided by 
kdemultimedia 3 which has now broken dependencies 
- Also it's possible that some apps will fail at runtime due to trying to load 
some aRts modules which were in kdemultimedia3 and not finding them 
- If we create a kdemultimedia3 we should make sure phonon, arts and 
pulseaudio work together 
- taxipilot itself isn't ported to kde 4 yet 
- there was no consensus if we drop taxipilot because of it's unmaintained 
kde4 state, patch it to don't use arts or create a kdemultimedia3 package 
- If we create a kdemultimedia3 package we have to get it reviewed because 
it's not existing in cvs 

o API documentation: 
- API documentation for kde 4 is currently not packaged but should be included 
in the future as -apidocs subpackages 
- A suggestion by RexDieter was to package them seperately to get them noarch 
- But this would mean to duplicate many spec files 
- the current decision was to package them as a part of the current specs 

o Live images for KDE4: 
- SebastianVahl created a tracker bug for monitoring the current MUST/SHOULD 
solve issues for the live images: #421891 [1]
- #422061 is working with selinux in permissive mode since yesterdays rawhide 
push [2] 
- in comparison to the kde3 live images the following applications were 
dropped: krusader, koffice-krita, twinkle and ktorrent 
- the current package list: CurrentPackageList [3]
- One of the biggest remaining issues is the non-working installer (#424811). 
[4] JeremyKatz said he has a hack to workaround this 

o development progress: the road to kde4: 
- kdeadmin, kaider and extragear-plasma are in rawhide now, kde-l10n is still 
being reviewed (#421231). [5]
- the kde4 port of bluecurve is also awaiting review (#425872) [6]
- /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/common was splitted into a kdelibs-common subpackage 
(# 417251) [7]

o recent bugs: 
- flash plugin seems to be still not working on x86_64 (#410651) [8]
- but this seems to be an issue of nspluginwrapper and a separate bug report 
against nspluginwrapper is needed


= Next Meeting =
