At the moment the only application inside from the Plasmate repo
which depends on extragear is Plasmate (the application), and it depends on the
Kdevplatform. The rest of the applications doesn't depend on extragear.

Plasmate (the application) is currently being disabled from building by default.
So the Plasmate repo doesn't need something from extragear in order to build.

In the feature Plasmate (the application) will be build as an optional depedency
only if the Kdevplatform is being present.

So kde/workspace is building first from the kdesrc-build, so if we move the Plasmate
repo there, Plasmate (the application) it will never get build.
It will require a rebuild.
