The scripts are now in the kdevelop repo; it is all kind of fiddly with
all the moving libraries in and out of the package. Simon Peter, the
AppImage author, once tried to simplify it, but it broke plugin loading
and we couldn't figure out why so for now I guess it's like this.

Yes, sqlite was missing, I rebuilt Qt with sqlite and QtHelp works now.
The svn plugin is also included.

I think we have a good set of fixes for both the AppImage as well as for
KDevelop itself and should release 5.0.1 as soon as possible; I'd
suggest to do it this weekend. Objections?

I started a release announcement, here:
If you like I can also create the tarballs again, we just have to set a
date for the tagging; how about tomorrow in the evening?
