Default Missing cooperation with KDE

Hi.
Is there a reason why Plasma Menu Bar, dbusmenu-qt, Colibri, etc. are not being
developed in KDE's repo? dbusmenu-qt already is a dependency for SC 4.5 just like
Akonadi. Why not place it in the same place (kdesupport)? The other parts could be
placed in Extragear if they are not suitable for the mainline SC -- KDE's Network
Management is also placed there for now.

As an upstream KDE translator I find it
especially annoying that thse projects are in no way integrated in KDE's wonderful
translation system.
So far Plasma Menu Bar seems to be not translated at all. Kubuntu
already has a shaky history with translations. Please don't repeat past
mistakes.

Markus

The Plasma Menu Bar requires Qt patches that can't go upstream until Qt 4.8,
so it's not suitable for upstream KDE right now. We've already discussed with
Plasma developers the plan for integrating when the Qt changes are upstreamed
(this has also already been discussed upstream).

Colibri is not part of Kubuntu, so you should take that up with it's author.

I don't think there's any requirement that all support libraries like
dbusmenu-qt need to reside in kdesupport.

There are other things that have been developed for Kubuntu that are in
Extragear, like the Plasma widget for Message Indicator.
