Subject: Preparations for the removal of the KDE3 and Qt3 libraries
Date: Mon, 22 Nov 2010 16:14:41 +0100
Source: linamc
Severity: wishlist

Usertags: qt3libs-removal


Dear maintainer,

The Debian Qt/KDE team is planning to remove the KDE3 and Qt3 libraries from 
Debian shortly after the Squeeze release. The transition phase to KDE4 and Qt4 
will finish since both KDE and Nokia upstream don't maintain the old versions 
of those libraries anymore.

In order to make this move, all packages directly or indirectly depending on 
the KDE3/Qt3 libraries have to either get ported to KDE4/Qt4 or eventually get 
removed from the Debian repositories.

Therefore, please take the time and:
- contact your upstream (if existing) and ask about the state of a KDE4/Qt4 
port of your application
- if there are no activities regarding porting, investigate whether there are 
suitable alternatives for your users
- if there is a KDE4/Qt4 port that is not yet packaged, consider packaging it
- if both the KDE3/Qt3 and the KDE4/Qt4 version already coexist in the Debian 
archives, consider removing the KDE3/Qt3 version

Documentation on how to port to KDE4 can be found at:
http://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Development/Tutorials/KDE4_Porting_Guide

Documentation on how to port to Qt4 can be found at:
http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/porting4.html

For any questions and issues, do not hesitate to contact the Debian Qt/KDE 
team at debian-qt-kde@lists.debian.org

Eckhart

Hello maintainer(s),

One year and a half later, it is about time to remove Qt3.
Please, migrate to the Qt4 version (if existing) or file for removal of your
package.

Thanks,
Ana
