KDE SC 4.7 soft feature freeze is close, and I would like to propose
the UPnP MediaServer KIO slave
( be
included into the set of kio slaves shipped with kde-runtime. The
slave was created as part of GSoC 2010 - Amarok and KDE UPnP support
and it was decided that it should be merged into kde-runtime at some

A couple of reasons I believe the slave is now ready for standard release is:
1) HUpnp ( - the Qt based UPnP library used
by the slave has a stable API and ABI with the release of 1.0.0 about
3 weeks ago.
2) The slave has been considerably simplified and single threaded, and
stable now.
3) The slave is independent and can be conditionally compiled and
installed if HUpnp is installed. kdelibs already contains a
FindHUpnp.cmake to find the HUpnp library.
4) The Solid UPnP backend (enabled in 4.7, again if HUpnp is found)
automatically launches UPnP media servers in the file manager with the

My exams get over this week and I can ensure that krazy checks pass
and the code is cleaned up some more.
There is inline documentation where required, and the search and
browse API documentation exists. There is no user
manual since it is a slave. I am confident about having it ready by
hard feature freeze.

If there is no objection I would like to request a merge into
kde-runtime. I will edit the 4.7 feature plan for the same.
