If you want to engage with me in "I have it right and you have it wrong" kind
of discussions, I opt out. Its obvious that both ways to say it are correct.
However thank you for reminding me to also look what is already there, instead
of only what is not.
I appreciate the effort of the Debian Qt/KDE and upstream development teams. I
made this clear here a lot of times.

Ah… thought Kopete would be Qt5, but I admit I did not check that before
writing this post. I was looking for an up to date XMPP client, and I may need
to look elsewhere, as KDE Telepathy also appears to be somewhat orphaned to
But I believe to remember that Kopete will still be in 17.12, so I bet
upstream developers ported it to Qt/KF5 meanwhile. Hmmm, it appears to be
still in works¹.
