You, nothing. Kubuntu did. Yes, I know, we should be one, happy, Open Source 
family and avoid harsh words, but when I see how many people were affected by 
this and causing them distress - "I lost my photos!"...

Due to kio-slaves architecture  they have to be *very* binary compatible. 
Kubuntu didn't recompile digiKam and dependencies against kdelibs they 
distribute and this is the effect.
