kdevelop package - 2.0 beta1 version for testing

Hash: SHA1

Hi people, the final version of kdevelop2.0b1 is available at

as usual. I'm going to have to look for sponsors again, because I'm a poor 
soul who is still waiting for DAM approval. I hope to be approved real soon 
now, so I can fix tons of bugs on my packages from the recent architecture 
related bugs and see them in the woody release.

It looks like I forgot to rename the source directory, and lintian will spit 
out quite a few warnings and errors, but I surely hope to alleviate all 
remaining problems ;)

The changes required to build these and a small fix in setup have been 
committed to kdevelop cvs, so you can alternatively cvs co from kde cvs 
repository and build the packages yourself. Use KDEVELOP_1_4 latest.

The maintainer of kdevelop in debian is Mr.
Norman Jordan <njordan@debian.org> 

I suppose he's seen my messages on debian-kde and on kdevelop-devel mailing 
lists. However I'm cc'ing him in hope that he will reflect the fixes to 
debian archive. If he's too busy right now, perhaps somebody could do an NMU. 
At any rate, the changes are available from upstream. [I'm definitely 
interested in maintaining this package, how could I be a co-maintainer?]

I advise using kdevelop to anyone who's doing C++ development. This is 
apparently the only viable alternative to using emacs/xemacs and it doesn't 
force you to write KDE applications in anyway. I've used it successfully for 
developing parallel code with no GUI and a totally strange custom build 

Unfortunately, it seems that the version of cervisia (KDE cvs front end) is 
outdated, so that will have to be dealt with but I can gladly say that you 
can have a decent development environment in KDE. I'm totally committed to 
that end :)
