well, I had promised to keep the MacPorts/KDE repository up to date
with your KCrash patches, but I was swamped with KF5 work, which is
why I hadn’t done that yet.

Now I see that you indeed have a real need for those patches in
MacPorts. So, I’ll do this right away. Give me half an hour to test

Apart from that I suggest you check out MacPorts’ Guide regarding
setting up local portfile repositories [1] or my comments in [2].

In any case, please clone the MacPorts/KDE repo [3] where I’ll
push your patches to in a few minutes.


P.S.: If you were present on IRC we could discuss more directly. ;)
