Well done Sebastian.
Checking that the history is all there is the first step for everyone. Checking 
that it builds is the second :)
If KBruch has no libkdeedu dependency then it's quite ready and the migration 
will be painless. 

Niko, what's the ETA for this please? 
- when can we move (considering the 4.6 release)
- do we need to migrate all around the same time or can it be done bit by bit?

I think we should make a wiki page about it: what wiki (techbase or community, 
I can find out and start it) with the history check, the state (ready, depends 
on, ...) and the migration date when it happens.

Best regards,
