I think I have been asking for a KDE SDK for the last 7 years :-)

KF5 should make that easier, given that there are many "small" parts.

Another idea: let's make the different parts of the SDK (Tier 1 components,
Tier 2 components, etc) available from a repository that could be
integrated in the Qt SDK Maintenance Tool.

This task is very time consuming (lots of rebuilds and tests) but it
shouldn't be too difficult from a technical point of view. It essentially
requires CMake knowledge. Jenkins knowledge and access to a powerful build
machine would be a plus. It's a pity GSoC is so far yet :-/
