Re: [opensuse-factory] KDE4/Qt4 removal from openSUSE Factory

Short version:
KDE4 is dead and will be removed shortly from openSUSE Factory.
Qt4 is dead and shall be removed as soon as possible from openSUSE Factory.

Long version:
The last kdelibs version was released in 2017 and is no longer maintained,
Qt4 is also no longer maintained upstream.

To avoid keeping zombies with security issues, it's time to kill the kdelibs4
based packages but also the Qt4 based ones.

A couple delete requests for KDE4 packages are currently being processes and
more will follow.
kdelibs4 will be the last one to go and after that, we'll remove packages not
present in Leap from the KDE: tree.

Qt4's fate shall be the same. If you maintain packages still using Qt4, please
check if Qt5-based versions exist, if the Qt dependency is mandatory and/or if
these packages are still useful.


The KDE team.

Can you please put together a list of all the packages that you plan to drop? There are potentially Qt4 packages that I don't maintain but am interested enough in to help with porting.
