There has been apparently quite some debate, and apparently, Ian, you are still working on a more elaborate solution for this problem, right? Therefore, should the present patches be used in the meantime, or are they not yet mature enough?

In that case, I would gladly upgrade to 4.13 first, and then include them with others during an improvement revision later, as we did for 4.12. As for most of the other patches, it purely implies kdelibs4, so that putting them later would also not force a large rebuild of several ports.
I am also not necessarily pushing to commit the new version in emergency, so that we could also wait for polished patches before committing, always with the hope of not putting too much at a time. I forgot to mention it in my previous mail, but this is of course also valid for René’s patches.
