= Agenda =

- Waves desktop background
- New xine-lib PA plugin (#439731) [1]
- State of konq-plugins (#438126)
- kdemultimedia3 pkg (#439701)

= Summary =

o Waves desktop background:
- Bug #439811 asks for also including the svgs in desktop-backgrounds to be
able to use these instead of the pngs.

o New xine-lib PA plugin:
- KDE currently uses the alsa output device through phonon to workaround the
not-working PA plugin for xine.
- Since the native PulseAudio plugin for xine-lib is working again we'll test
it when xine-lib is patched.
- Contingency plan: stay with the current ALSA solution.
- Test plan: Wait for xine-lib to include the PulseAudio plugin and test it
with amarok or other xine apps.

o kdemultimedia3 pkg review:
- A kdemultimedia3 compat package would contain libarts_* for arts support in
KDE3 applications.
- Packages that still use arts: k3b, koffice-kpresenter, basket, taxipilot,
kbilliards, allegro, gg2, kadu, xeuphoric, gnubg
- If possible, the packages should disable arts support (eg. if it's only used
for playing hardcoded sounds).
- The package will be pulled from review for now.

o state of konq-plugins:
- All plugins in konq-plugins should be tested for functionality.
- Not working plugins will be disabled.
- The akregator plugin will need kdepim to work properly but Sebastian Vahl
wants to avoid a hard dependency on kdepim.
- Proper solutions would be:
* Create a sub package just for one plugin and let this package require
* Omit akgreator from konq-addons.
don't require kdepim at all (like kdeaddons does)
* add a short explanation to %description
- The decision was to use the latter.

o Open discussion:
- KDM theme circles:
* Default KDM theme does not really fit between RHGB and Ksplash/Desktop
* Because there likely will be no GDM theme to adopt, one solution could be
to use a non-themed KDM with "waves" as background wallpaper.
