Hi all,

Plasma-Mycroft has been in KDE review over a month, there have been a few additions and bug fixes to the plasmoid but nothing major, all fixes have also been made to the build system which were mentioned by Christophe Giboudeaux, I am hoping plasma-mycroft can complete its review soon as I am looking forward to making a stable release. As there haven't also been any other objections currently can this review process move ahead / moved to extra gears.

I have fixed the following:
- removed Author, Email, Bug_Address from top CMakeLists.txt
- set destination to use ${SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR}
- use ecm_install_icons from ecm to install the icons
- in plugin/CMakeLists.txt removed unused pkgconfig
- added a ATTRIBUTION file to top directory to mark usage of images (wikipedia icon)
- added a Copying.apache2 license file as, Mycroft are now Apache 2.0 licensed
- added license headers to all files in plasmoid/content/ui missing the header
- removed .directory file in plasmoid/contents/images

I am not sure about the COPYING file as I think this should be under GPL-2.1 as most other plasmoid/applets also seemed to be released under this license does this file need to be updated to reflect 2.1 specifically ?

Just commenting on the build system part.
In the top CMakeLists.txt :
-  AUTHOR, EMAIL, BUG_ADDRESS are set but not used anywhere, just remove them.
- install( DIRECTORY mycroft DESTINATION /etc ) → use ${SYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR}
instead of /etc
- Instead of using install( DIRECTORY ...), please use ecm_install_icons from
- in plugin/CMakeLists.txt, you include pkgconfig but don't use it for

other notes :
- COPYING contains the GPL-2.0 license but nothing needs it
- is GPL-3.0+ but there's no license file in the repository
- There's a wikipedia icon in the repo, don't forget the terms (the
attribution part) :

- some files in plasmoid/content/ui don't have a license header
- there's a .directory file in plasmoid/contents/images, this should probably
not be in the repo :)

That's all.
