Final kde-runtime splitting plan

Hi there

Today Aleix and I are starting to split kde-runtime so we have gone through
all the components again making sure that everything has a suitable
destination. The result is this [1] wiki.

Please, check that you are ok with the destination of each component and also
check the things that have been targeted as **REMOVE** should be really
removed (we believe so).

Cheers !

Kio-network works on 4.13 for me.
http://wstaw.org/w/2ADU/[1]
Does have a weird issue that it has to be refreshed twice to show any content for
the first time, but works perfectly after that.
Would be a pity to remove the only network browser.

Cheers

I'm good on moving it elsewhere but what I would like to avoid is shipping
this not finished kio as part of the official release which servers only a use
(browser and discovery) that most people do not need by itself.

Cheers.

I agree its not fully functional but in it's present state it is still incredibly useful in the
file dialog for accessing the network transparency of kde's kioslaves. With a bit of
polish (such as linking ktp to *.presence, fish kioslave for *.udisks-ssh) it would be
perfect.

It is a pity indeed. I just tried it myself on KDE4 and it seems like it
wants to work but it doesn't quite.

I wouldn't want this to prolongue, this project couldn't go through
kdereview at the moment successfully, so there's little reason for it to
stay in.

Instead of removing, we can put it differently and move it to a little farm
where kioslaves go die, but if somebody doesn't commit to it, it has to go.

Also there's many other kioslaves in need for love: ** Adopt your kioslave
**

Why kreadconfig (which includes kreadconfig and kwriteconfig) is going to be
in plasma-workspace? Isn't it useful for every KConfig-based
component/application? Maybe kde cli tools could be the target...

Yes, but only assuming that kde-workspace can then depend on kde-cli-tools at
runtime (since startkde uses kreadconfig).

I wonder if a good place will be kconfig itself? they are useful tools for any
kconfig user.

Maintainer, any thoughts?

Sounds like a good idea to me. They would then also serve as examples on
KConfig usage :)

Can you give a rationale of why we're removing the following things?

kfile4
kio_cgi
kio settings
