Roll call (5 minutes)

Optional semantic-desktop support (10 minutes)

Some parts of KDE upstream no longer have optional support for semantic-desktop. We currently work around this by using ugly hacks but it is fragile causing bugs like bug #468104 and bug #465322. It is apparently easy to disable semantic-desktop features at runtime.

Options:

  • Do nothing and add more fixes/hacks as bugs crop up
  • Track upstream more closely and support optional semantic-desktop only where supported by upstream (noting that find_package() can be controlled these days unless it explicitly has a REQUIRED)
  • Drop semantic-desktop USE flag completely

Drop oldpim? (5 minutes)

  • yes / no / maybe
  • mask now immediately?
