Missing discipline with checkins

I'd like to ask for some more discipline with checkins. Right now trunk
doesn't build because the duchain tests are not building. I've also had
to fix a couple of extra ";" that occured after macro's to even get
platform compiled. Note that dirk's dashboard compiles with -pedantic
on, so we'll be red as long as those are around.

Basically one should obey the basic SVN guidelines for KDE's svn
repository, written down here:

Especially the first four points. That means everybody who wants to hack
on KDevelop needs to

- enable building of tests via -DKDE4_BUILD_TESTS
- rebuild both kdevplatform and kdevelop - completely! before any

I don't think thats too much to ask, given that some of us have really
limited time and would like something that at least compiles.

I know people make mistakes sometimes, forgetting a file here or
forgetting a commit there. Still some more discipline is needed I think.

And for next years SoC if there will be one, I think we need to have
feature branches for the SoC projects - especially if the projects work
on core parts. 


Do something unusual today.  Pay a bill.
