Subject: Preparations for the removal of the KDE3 and Qt3 libraries
Date: Tue, 23 Nov 2010 00:45:54 +0100
Source: earth3d
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-qt-kde@lists.debian.org
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 maintainers,

One year and a half later, it is about time to remove Qt3.
If there is not a Qt4 version, we should remove this package. In the case of
earth3d seems to be a java version, could you look at packaging this version
instead?

Thanks,
Ana

Hi,
Is somebody going to work in the new java version or I should ask for removal?

I guess removal is okay, nobody seems to be interested in working on
those porting.
