Hi René,

I see only now, that this post hadn’t reached KDE-MAC, which is why I resend it now.

Those two bugs were mine. ;)

Yes, that IS possible, but I would vote for keeping it away from MacPorts - for now
at least.

As I’ve written earlier on KDE-MAC to Nicolas, I would vote for using our dedicated
MacPorts/KDE devel git repo [1].

We can update all your patches from the RB and bring them as variants into that
kdelibs4 port. This way anyone can easily check out the MacPorts port tree locally
and make tests for all variants as one likes. Cross-checking would be much easier 
in this case.


	ALTERNATIVELY we can host this indeed as kdelibs4-devel on MacPorts,
	because we’d have buildbot support for all four OSX versions built in
	in this a case. 

That should even work, if one would have this port on an SVN user directory, as I was
told, but I haven’t tested it up to now.

Well, I guess we should decide how to proceed:

a) use the GIT-repo at kde.org [1]      OR  MacPorts’ an SVN user repository ?

b) introduce a new port kdelibs4-devel  OR  use kdelibs4 with new variants ?

c) when shall we go public on MacPorts’ trunk ?

d) submit patches to be made to kdelibs’ code to KDE, so that we’ll be free of all those patchfiles on MP

But first we should test whether it the buildbots pick up installs from user dirs
or not, in order to be able to decide where to go.
