Today we had the 3rd update meeting for KF5, on #kde-devel.

Attendees: 287 people in the IRC channel :-)


* qt5.git has been updated, everyone should pull and recompile at some point 
this week
* the "Building" wiki page has been updated; if you don't have a working 
setup, I strongly recommend switching to the newly described setup
(uninstalled Qt, kdesrc-build for everything else)

On-going work:

* David Edmundson (d_ed_), Wojciech Kapuscinski (wojtask9_), Maarten De Meyer 
(mdemeyer), Anne-Marie Mahfouf (annma_) are all working on tasks from the 
KDEUI crumble.
* alimg (didn't grab your real name, sorry) will join the effort and pick a 
task after setup
* David Gil (dgilo) will start on the task of porting from time_t to QDateTime

Topics discussed:

* the kdesrc-build setup has the issue that changes to the kdesrc-buildrc 
recipe on my website won't propagate automatically to its users. Aaron found a 
solution: a global recipe in git (I suggested the kdesrc-build git) which we 
can include from our kdesrc-buildrc


* Congratulations to Benjamin Port (ben2367) who got the QTextEdit placeholder 
feature merged into Qt !

Closed action items from last time:

> * [wojtask9_] Get a KDE account to be able to push his patches himself
-> done
> * [ervin + dfaure] Send meeting reminders on mondays
-> I sent it one hour before, instead.
> * [ervin] Talk to Ben about having our own qt5.git with a kf5 branch
-> not needed anymore (for now), given that qt5.git got updated upstream
> * [notmart + aseigo] Investigate the dbusmenu breakage
-> was a local issue on notmart's computer, all ok now
> * [dfaure] Document the unixisms which should be cleaned up to get people
> to help
-> done, added a task on kdelibs_cleanup
> * [ervin + dfaure] Review the build instructions
-> done

Action items still open:

> * [sandsmark] Finish the work on KPtyProcess
> * [steveire] Write a "CMake for frameworks" guideline in the wiki
> * [notmart] Look at cleaning up the CMake files in plasma-framework (if time 

New action items:

* [ben2367] update QTextEdit placeholder feature to match QLineEdit's
* [dfaure] extract kf5 module definitions from kdesrc-buildrc into a file in 
* [steveire] investigate why kde4support isn't usable from outside kdelibs
(issue with the cmake file)

Next meeting will be Tuesday 4 June. Exact time to be announced later (I won't 
be available at the usual 4pm CEST).
