Personally, I agree there are a few "hard

remaining there for some a hard choice. Like I gather so many others, I had
migrated to KDE:current initially for this reason. However, I also
understand the reasoning behind keeping 13.1 on a stable and original
baseline release for long term evergreen support. I certainly would like
to see KDE:current with at least 4.13 continue for 13.1 for evergreen
and - there is an option to build against e.g.
would that be an option for KDE:current?
