You've got a slight issue at the moment given that a KF5 version of 
Kdenlive is forthcoming in the near term future.

Ideally, you'd make your modifications against that branch.  But, there 
are stability issues presently that make 'modifications' problematic 
given the thrust and intent of ongoing work.

Therefore, if you're itching to get started right away, I'd use Ubu 
14.04 and Kdevelop4, making modifications against the current 0.9.10 
release.  Bear in mind, however, that you may have to take on the task 
of applying the modifications against the KF5 release once it is ready.

If you can wait a few months for the KF5 release to come up to the 
surface that may make integration and acceptance of your proposed mods 
more streamlined.
