PIM dependency metadata

Hi all,

Can someone take a look at the dependency metadata please for PIM?

There are a couple of issues, namely:
a) For some reason it depends on plasma-workspace - this seems
completely wrong to me. Please be careful when adding items to the
dependency chain

b) kblog is unbuildable, due to CalendarCore being absent. I've no
idea where to find this. See

this was added because of ktimezoned, that is part of plasma-workspace to run
tests in kcalccore successfully. For further discussion see:

kcalcore is the needed package. But the Build runs successfully, don't see any

Btw. what is the difference between
<a href="" title=""></a> and <a href="" title=""></a>

ktimezoned needs to move out of Plasma then, or the relevant classes

That's now fixed. is the production system - it uses KVM hosted VMs to run builds. is the upcoming replacement to it, and uses
Docker hosted containers to run builds (on Linux anyway, Windows will
end up using KVM when we deploy that)

Yep, this sounds like ktimezoned should move to KF5.

How are non-plasma users supposed to get correct timezones in e.g. PIM apps otherwise?

Note that this daemon is used these days only to signal a timezone change
you can get current/any timezone by using QTimeZone.

non-plamsa users are currently doomed :D Mostly I wanted a happy CI to do the
rewrite from KDateTime,KTimezone etc. to theire QT5 replacements. And If I
understood people right ktimezond is than not needed anymore.

But nether the less ktimezond should live outside plasma.

sandbox is where I test new features. Namely we are pushing docker builds.
There is a new icu so we have to rebuild everything.

There are more issues. For stable-kf5-qt5 only some of the pim stack has
Applications 15.12 in the metadata so of course only part of the stack can
build due to missing dependencies.
Please update logical-module-structure to have all or none of pim in the
stable builds.

KF5CalendarCore is in kcalcore, and looking at the logs it seems to be
in the list of deps.
