Hi Yue,

thanks for your answer. Some more question below:

Could someone check if that is still the case?

Yue, do you also remember why you left out Calligra Plan from the set?

Actually, now that I thought a little bit more about it, the "OSX" productset 
makes some sense, as it specifies all the products & features that make sense 
on that platform (e.g. CalligraActive does not). Similar to how the "ACTIVE" 
productset specifies what makes sense for the Plasma Active platform. So I 
would like to repull my claim about the "abuse", sorry. And propose to keep it 
around, or rather, no longer propose to remove it :)

Still, anything that does not compile on the platform (but should), should 
only be disabled in section "Detect which products/features can be compiled". 
So that is something I will change.
