Subject: Preparations for the removal of the KDE3 and Qt3 libraries
Date: Tue, 23 Nov 2010 00:53:38 +0100
Source: xsidplay
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 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

There seem to be a Qt4 version of xsidplay named xsidplay2
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xsidplay2/files/xsidplay2/

Could you please  look into updating the package?

Thanks, 
Ana

Hi maintainer,

Your package is one of the last 5 remaining packages in unstable using Qt3.
I haven't pushed for the removal until now because you have told me you
were working in a possible Qt4 version. The freeze is close, I don't know
the date yet, but if you don't see feasible pushing the Qt4 version within
2 weeks, your shiny Qt4 package is probably not making it, so please file 
for removal.

Thanks,
Ana
