Bug#593469: kdelibs5-data: Disable all debug output by default
Currently, there is a discussion on debian-devel of noisy KDE apps which write to
the terminal by default when they're launched from it. When launched from KRunner
or any other non-terminal, such messages fill up ~/.xsession-errors.
Some people in the discussion, probably the majority judging from the current status,
want all debug areas to be disabled by default for the Debian packages. So far no KDE/Qt
maintainer has raised an opinion about this, so this bug report is intended to
get a statement about the debugging behaviour and perhaps to change it to please those
who are annoyed by the messages on the terminal or on disk.
(This bug is filed from a KUbuntu system but AFAIK equally applies to the Debian packages.)
