KDE SC 4.5.1 packages available
Semi-official KDE SC 4.5.1 packages are now available at
Unfortunately not all of the packages are ready yet, so you may notice
that some things are missing. The missing source packages at the
moment are kdeaccessibility, kdeadmin, kdegames, kdemultimedia,
kdebindings, kdetoys, kdewebdev and kde-l10n as well as meta-kde (the
kde-standard and misc metapackages). Despite this, you can upgrade
everything else just fine from your existing KDE SC 4.4.5 using the
instructions given on that site.
Once all the packages are prepared and working, we plan to release
them to Debian experimental. Until then, any updates or new prepared
packages will go to this repository.
We appologize for the long delay since 4.5.0 was released, but I hope
you understand the reasons behind this (getting squeeze ready, work,
real life, summer vacations, few active people in the team, etc...)
To all the people out there that offered to help: We appreciate your
offer and we appologise for the lack of proper documentation.
Packaging KDE SC is not an easy task and newcomers are usually advised
to try packaging something smaller first, like something from
kde-apps.org. We will try to make things better in the future, by
documenting better our workflows and policies. If you still would like
to help, as you can see, there is still work to do. Besides packaging,
there are other things you could do, such as update copyright files
(which I find easier, but more time-consuming).
PS: Please read well the instructions and please report packaging bugs
only here and on irc, not on the debian bug tracking system. Thanks in
