Thoughts for UDS Karmic

Kubuntu Karmic Packaging

https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/kubuntu-karmic-packaging https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuKarmicPackaging

  • KDE 4.3
  • Get rid of KDE 3? k3b, openoffice?
  • KOffice 2 if possible (not OO replacement yet)
  • Review web browser Konqueror, Rekonq, Arora?
  • Fix phonon<->Qt dependency

  • Migrate the remaining -kde4 packages to their KDE3 package names? (kdevelop-kde4, kdewebdev-kde4, koffice2)
  • What about including Shaman in Karmic?
  • Review Debian KDE team tools/policy and see how best to align to Debian's approach (and give them feedback)
  • Add plasma widget Universe meta-package to make it easy for someone to get all the packaged widgets installed

Kubuntu Karmic Development

https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/kubuntu-karmic-development https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuKarmicDevelopment

  • Jockey in System Settings?
  • Finish system-config-printer-kde, really?
  • PolicyKit integration for all of our tools? (Language-Selector, software-properties, etc)

  • debconf frontend with Qt 4? (Debian may be working on this already)
  • packagekit problems, fork issue, blocked updates, editing repositories, cryptographic verification of packages
  • userconfig from guidance (should also look at the Pardus tools)?
  • OO KDE 4 port?
  • Review Ayatana developments and incorporate appropriate/mature developments
  • Standalone GTK theme KCM to replace gtk-qt-engine's? (Perhaps fork g-q-e's?)

Kubuntu Karmic Ubiquity

https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/kubuntu-karmic-ubiquity https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuKarmicUbiquity

  • Better small screen support (netbooks!)
  • Better flow and description of resulting action?
  • Possibly a better look? Suggestions of what do do while system installs? (think slideshow...)
  • General: oem/ubiquity integration (prevent code copy errors)

Kubuntu Community

https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/kubuntu-karmic-community https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuKarmicCommunity

  • Review council membership
  • How does archive re-org affect us?
  • Anything else we can do to improve the community?

Kubuntu QA

https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/kubuntu-karmic-qa https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuKarmicQA

  • How can we improve QA?
  • Fix translations

Dx team integration with Kubuntu


  • How to have Gnome & KDE applications share a common notification

protocol (work on the FD.o list)?

  • How to provide a compatible/alternative notification mechanism for KDE?
  • How to change/improve/patch applications using notifications to be

compatible with the existing/future notification service, including notify-osd (either on Gnome or KDE btw)? * Which KDE sub-projects should we interact with for notifications & messaging (kdebase, kdepim, others in particular?)
