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.

Thank you.
