There's work underway of course. Laurent is very instrumental there. But 
there's still a long way to go AFAIK. Having a branch that builds is a first 
step, but then splitting the repository will be necessary, figuring out which 
parts of kdepim-runtime will go with which part of kdepimlibs, organizing the 
splitted repositories so that they follow the existing policies, etc.

It's pretty much the kdelibs/kde-runtime work again, it shouldn't be

Sure, for the CI side what I have in mind is mostly about supporting more 
platforms (at least windows, mac and android as mentioned earlier) with all 
the results in the same dashboard (currently the mac results come from 
"somewhere"). For the tests side, it is about getting way more tests 
introduced, we might also want to start looking at the coverage data (although 
the CI might be the bottleneck there).

Hope that clarifies.
