Phabricator: Make it happen already!

Hello all,

So we've been evaluating different options to modernize our tooling, and for
some reason it looks like we're still waiting on some external pressure to
pick one. I'll then try to be this external pressure with this war cry:

Phaaab! Make it happen already!

It is basically what I reported during the Phabricator BoF at Akademy this
year.

Retiring and testament

Hello dear KDE contributors,

I'm sending this from Akademy 2014. Our KDE Frameworks BoF is now over, as
usual we did great progress:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Meetings/201409Akademy" title="https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Meetings/201409Akademy">https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Meetings/201409Akademy</a>

Also I put in place the goals for the months to come before coming:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Epics" title="https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Epics">https://community.kde.org/Frameworks/Epics</a>

It might require updating based on the minutes of the meeting.

Now, let's get to the subject of this email: effective immediately I will
be stepping back from KDE Frameworks to refocus my energy elsewhere in KDE.

Hello everyone,

This is the minutes of the Week 20 KF5 meeting.

KDE Frameworks: There will be a beta 3

Hello all,

After the release of beta 2, we realized that it couldn't be the last beta for
several reasons:
* a long standing release blocker in libsolid still wasn't addressed in time
for beta 2, it'll hopefully be solved in the next few days, otherwise we'll
put in place a contingency plan;
* the paint is still a bit fresh on some of the internationalization work
after the sprint and it could benefit from some more testing;
* some quirks were still found in the release scripts, so having an extra run
before final can't hurt to check all the pieces fit together now.

That's why on ear

KDE Frameworks Release Cycle

Hello people,

As you may have noticed, we're covering quite a few tasks here during the
sprint. But, we're also having discussion topics, and the most important one
we covered is the release cycle. Indeed, we got the question several times
already of "once 5.0 is out what will happen?" It is what I'll try to address
in this email.

Short story: we'll go for a one month release cycle, with no branch.

You can stop reading here, thank you, bye!

...

Still here? Oh you want more details!? OK, read on.

KF5 Maintainers: Please get ready for release

Hello framework maintainers,

As you know we're getting near the final release. If we don't hit a critical
issue, we'll release the final early June. Before that, we'll have a second
beta on May 4th, and we'd like it to look as close to the final as possible.

That's why I'm sending you this email. Please take time in the coming week to
look at your frameworks and do that last bit of spring cleaning.

KDE Frameworks: Looking for maintainers

Hello everyone,

This is a reminder that we're still looking for maintainers for our
frameworks. Out of the 57 existing frameworks 33 have no maintainer (yes,
that's almost 60%). I don't know about you, but I find that worrying.

The modules without maintainers are spread this way:
- 9 are tier 1 (so depending only on Qt);
- 7 are tier 2 (depending on Qt and a couple of tier 1);
- 14 are tier 3 (larger dependencies)
- 3 are tier 4 (kde4support and modules helping for platform integration).

I'd like to thanks all the people who already stepped up to become frameworks
maintainers!

#kde-devel at 4pm Paris time.

Were present: apol and myself.

and KWidgetsAddons;
* he'll cover KArchive and ThreadWeaver next which are blocking TP1;

* ervin has been acting behind the scene to get things rolling for TP1;
* feels like being a kind of manager, not doing terribly much on the
technical front;

And that's it for today!
