Default Kubuntu on launchpad?

I tried out the latest RC for KDE and was BLOWN AWAY how awesome it
was! Seriously! Good stuff!

I did notice some rough edges [1]. Given that I know C++ and have
plenty of time on my hand I was eager to contribute. I figured I could
sign onto launchpad ; branch the kdebase repository ; and I'd be set
up to contribute with all the goodness launchpad provides. Only I
can't figure something out: *where* is the kdebase, or any KDE
project, repository on launchpad? Or is launchpad only used for bug
tracking and package distribution?

With projects like groundcontrol [2] making contribution to Ubuntu a
breeze I was really hoping for Kubuntu to be integrated into
launchpad. However I can't find the repositories on launchpad. Am I
missing something? Should I stick to kdesvn-build and submit patches
the old-school way? The old-school way makes me less excited to
contribute :-(

Cheers,
Corey O'Connor

Apparently the kdebase import is just plain broken right now. In most cases,
you'd do:
bzr branch lp:ubuntu/lucid/sourcepackage
so like:
bzr branch lp:ubuntu/lucid/kdepim

I explained how to find the various kdebase* packages in KDE svn to the
people dealing with getting the imports working, I guess they didn't get
to it yet.

I thought at this point anything that wasn't imported was in that state
because they tried it, and it failed.

And Lernid? Jono told Rich that having a KDE version of Lernid would just
confuse users so don't release one...after Rich had it written and working.

Up until recently all of KDE was a failed import. Now we're down to some
subset of it. I haven't looked exactly what.

Thanks!

The lp:~kubuntu-members/kdebase/ubuntu files appear to be a combination of:
1. debian packaging files
2. A delta from the main kdebase source tree in the form of a set of
patches managed by quilt

This is nice for distribution but is not so nice for development. I'd
prefer my development work to involve three launchpad bzr
repositories:
A. An import of the mainline kdebase svn tree
B. A branch of A with the Kubuntu patches applied.
C. A branch of B which I would use for development.

I think A is what you are referring to when you are talking about the
broken kdebase import?
https://code.launchpad.net/~vcs-imports/kdebase/trunk

Sounds like everybody is in agreement that we should get this fixed.

Corey O'Connor

I am ignorant of Lernid. Any links?

As for Ground Control and Project I would imagine they could be
partitioned into a GUI frontend and then a backend that integrates
with the launchpad as a web service? I'm probably missing something,
but if not then hopefully the backend can be shared between GNOME and
KDE.
