= Agenda =

* Replacing gnome-packagekit with kpackagekit on KDE live images?
* Mysterious cmake failure on ppc64 [1]
* Plasma backports? (see also plasma-4.1-openSUSE [2])
* KMix multimedia key support (Kubuntu patch)
* find-lang-like macro for KDE documentation 

= Summary =

* The decision of making kpackagekit the default on the live images
was postponed to next week.
* So there will be some extra time to test kpackagekit. 

Mysterious cmake failure on ppc64:
* ppc64 builds of kdepim always fail with various cmake errors. [1]
* This also prevents us from fixing the broken libgnokii.so.3
* It's unclear what's going wrong there. 

Plasma backports?:
* OpenSUSE did some backports of plasma features in their KDE-4.1
version. [2]
* At least the autohide functionality [3] of the plasma panel is also
interesting for us (and was also frequently requested).
* A problem will be that all these backports will be (mostly)
untranslated until KDE-4.2.
* We'll try to backport the autohide functionality with avoiding
the unnecessary string changes in it's translation.
* Another intersting one is the folderview backport [4] with the
ability to save icon positions across sessions.
* But here these changes aren't properly isolated and don't worth
the trouble of a backport. 

KMix multimedia key support:
* Kubuntu has implemented support for multimedia keys in kmix.
* KevinKofler isolated the needed changes. [5]
* One big disadvantage is that the volume slider is always
hardcoded to "Master:0".
* It also introduces some new strings that aren't translated yet.
* Another disadvantage is that Kubuntu's patch isn't send to
upstream yet.
* We'll talk to the responsible Kubuntu maintainer first before
making further decisions. 

find-lang-like macro for KDE documentation:
*  %find_lang doesn't has proper support for KDE documentation at
the moment.
* It should be patched to better support the "--kde" parameter
* The currently used copy&pasted scripts could be avoided then.
* Another solution could be a macro in kde-filesystem.
* The advantage here will be that we could implement this earlier
(though %find_lang is the better place for this).
