This is not a setup issue on your side.

The problem with "Editor" is that we still didn't fix the XML files describing 
the menu layout for the KTextEditor component 

I guess the "Package" menu entry comes from plasmate? Because we don't create 
such an entry on our own.

Makes sense.

Care to file a review-request for this? See kdevplatform.git:plugins/konsole/.
