Well, I started a bit on  that, and now I'm really confused. According
to the docs KDevBuildTool is deprecated, however the
qmakeprojectpart.cpp still subclasses it and is the class used for qmake

Then there's buildtools/projectmanager/importers/qmake which contains a
KDevProjectEditor. However there's no KDevProjectImporter...

Last but not least there's the real "parsing" stuff (.ll and .yy in

I'm really totally confused as to which way I should take (should I
implement KDevProjectImporter+~Editor+~Builder, or should I try to do
the same as the current qmake manager does)?

I'd really appreciate it if somebody (maybe as PM if it's lengthy) could
shed some light on this for me. Thanks in advance.
