I remember to have had discussions about these locations with David a while ago

I recall him also pointing out that some apps might not be KDE-based, but using
KF5 libs back then, which complicates things even more.

Yes, I always also wondered about how all this could be kept consistent in an
Apple-ish manner in the light of KF5 apps also having stuff in kxmlgui5…


P.S.: When starting off with OSX/CI I wanted to do everything OSX-compliantly, but
after all saw that I would get nowhere if I tried to do this monster-undertaking
all on my own. As you know, I finally had to come up with an OSX/CI system which
uses almost the same folder structure like KDE's Linux build slaves. (Except the
application install location in /Applications/KF5/ everything looks like on Linux.)
