Yes, the kdewebdev/quanta in trunk is completely KDevelop dependent. I 
just fixed to work with the current code (before your changes). :-)

Ok, so at least please announce what is changing there or document 
properly, so we don't have to guess what is needed to change.

The idea is what I said: to have the whole trunk in a compilable state. 
People port code all over the KDE trunk to speed the transition to 
KDE4. They need code that compiles, so in case of KDevelop and Quanta, 
we need to reduce the time when they are not compiling. One way to 
achieve this is to have the same policy (change only when allowed and 
adapt code that is using to it as soon as you make the changes), the 
other is to announce the changes, so we can react asap.
As I saw many of the KDevelop plugins were not ported yet to the new 
API, but as soon as they will be ported, BIC changes will affect much 
more code, even inside KDevelop.

I know that KDevelop has not so many developers, and I will also help at 
least with fixing bugs we find in the libs or the plugins we will use 
as well.
