Package: kdiff3
Version: 0.9.96-2
Severity: normal


kdiff3 build depends on qt3-dev-tools-compat that belongs to Qt3 for
generating the translation files.
Qt3 is being removed from the archive, so please switch to the Qt4
I haven't tried but:
 lrelease foo.ts -qm foo.qm
from qt4-linguist-tools should work instead.
