Wrong list. kde-devel is for development of applications with KDE; 
kde-core-devel is about development of KDE.

Cross-posting there. When replying, please remove kde-devel from the Cc.


In kdelibs/kdecore/compression/klzmafilter.cpp, you have a #define with 
two underscores. Two underscores are reserved, so you must be changing 
some gcc and/or glibc specific configuration. Can you find a solution 
without that?

A few lines in the same file have tabulation, while most don't. That's 
probably unintentional. Before committing, please remove the tabs. (same 
for kdebase/runtime/nepomuk/strigibackend/sopranoindexwriter.cpp)

In kdebase/runtime/doc/kioslave/lzma.docbook, you have 
<author>&Lauri.Watts; &Lauri.Watts.mail;</author>. Did Lauri really write 
that file or did you copy/paste from somewhere else? I don't know the 
policy here...

In all the patch looks fine and I'd say commit.
