yep, that’s important, as it showed itself with kstars and eigen3.
It’s always best to start installation at least from a clean machine.
In principle one would have to work like the buildbot - i.e. always
clean everything before installing any port - but this isn’t realistic
considering the large number of KDE 4.13 ports.

This doesn’t seem to be included yet, right? (TODO?)

I haven’t looked into these yet. (TODO)

+1 (TODO: But we should add a variant for it for testing anyway.)

Same for me up to now.

I hope the branch ‘KDE4.13’ in our git will now a good basis to get a joint polishing
(TODO) of all these ports done.


P.S.: René and Ian, you guys are added as developers to [1], so feel free to update
      the repository regarding your patches (TODO).

P.P.S.: Nicolas, are you registered as a KDE developer? If not, please send me any
