it's about time now to drop Qt4 WebKit, before it has a chance to get into
Leap 15.0. It received its last "major" update in 2013 and is now for over
three years without security-related fixes or actually any kind of bugfixes.
For now it'll only be removed from openSUSE:Leap:15.0 and :Factory and stay
in the devel prj (KDE:Qt) as long as it builds fine. This is mostly due to
some third-party applications that still need it, like the old skype, for
A lot of kdelibs4-based applications are in the dependency tree, but with some
patches we were able to sever the close tie between kdelibs4/kdebase4 and
WebKit. There are some packages which will not build anymore after the drop,
so if you really need them, you'll have to patch them to not use Qt4 WebKit.
If this does not happen before KDE:Applications 17.12 lands in Factory,
those packages will not be installable anymore.
The list is:
