Hmm, in line with the above we could also opt for just the standard name, at least for those "ports" where kf5 is in the official name. Others could just have a 5 appended - Kate5, KDevelop5, etc. I'm not sure if we really need to be very rigid about this.

Keep hoping, as it turns out I have gotten side-tracked and at-trac-ted :) by other things so I haven't even fetched your files yet!
And as I said in another mail, the feedback I've had in the thread I started on kf5-frameworks haven't really improved my motivation to start ...


PS: what's really affected is my motivation to help improve KF5 instead of just developing patches for MacPorts (or just myself) ...
