Just a curiosity. In debian it seems I don't have any indication on slots, so 
it's not immediate to know whether a package is based on kde4 or framework5. 
For instance:

solitone at alan:~$ apt-cache policy okular
  Installed: 4:16.08.2-1+b1
  Candidate: 4:16.08.2-1+b1

solitone at alan:~$ apt-cache policy kde-baseapps-bin 
  Installed: 4:16.08.3-1
  Candidate: 4:16.08.3-1

kde-baseapps-bin is the debian package providing kdialog.

Thanks again,
