= Summary =

'Celebrating the release:'
* Fedora's KDE4 got mentioned in a Distrowatch Feature. [2]
* There were some reports that spell-checking in kate is broken.

'dropping Phonon "ALSA default device" hack?':
* In the past we used a hack [3] to force Phonon to use Alsa by default if
native PulseAudio support was broken.
* Since xine-lib-pulseaudio is more reliable the hack will be dropped.

'qt4 bindir':
* the use of %{_bindir} as %{_qt4_bindir} was reverted because it
causes/fixes some bugs: #446167 and #422291.
* Instead of this the following solution will be used:
* keep %{_qt4_bindir} and %{_bindir} separate.
* move the executables to %{_bindir}.
* keep %{_qt4_bindir} as a directory and use symlinks from there
to %{_bindir} (or wrapper scripts if that works better).
* This allows us to keep only qmake-qt4 in %{_bindir} and both qmake and
qmake-qt4 in %{_qt4_bindir} for F8 and possibly F9, and only have
a %{_bindir}/qmake in qt 4 in F10+.

'status of kpackagekit':
* RichardHughes mentioned a KDE frontend for PackageKit in his blog. [4]
* LukasTinkl will have a closer look at kpackagekit.

'iclock applet (International Clock applet for Qt4/KDE4)':
* LukasTinkl created a clock applet fot Qt4/KDE4 and asked for feedback. [5]
* He will also submit a package for review to include this in F10.

'Planning for F10':
* KDE's core components in Rawhide are now at 4.0.72 (4.1 alpha1 + 1 week).
* kdepim needs work.
* libopensync-plugin-kdepim needs to be upgraded to a development snapshot.
* basket also needs to be upgraded to a KDE4 based snapshot (or basket
support in kdepim needs to be disabled).
* kdevelop: needs kdevplatform packaged and reviewed.
* kde-l10n: kdepim and kdevelop will be handled first before the translations
from kde-i18n will be switched to kde-l10n.
* kdewebdev will stay at kde-3.5 because Quanta won't be ready for KDE 4.1.
* RexDieter started to work on koffice-2.
