The issue for a source distribution like Gentoo is that by having a
single localization package for each language, KDE option, we can only
build either the KDE-4.4* or KDE-4.5* localization package.
Because Gentoo is a source distribution, we can't do like binary
distributions and have a Gentoo developer building KDE-4.4.6
localization package in one chroot, build the KDE-4.5.1 localization
package in another chroot and then put the files together in a binary
package to distribute to our users. By being a source distribution,
every Gentoo user has to build the localization packages on his/her system.
What do I expect KDE to do? Since this issue was created by KDE and
until the KDE project is willing to review the splitting of the current
tarballs, including localization packages, it would be great if the KDE
project could provide a single tarball including the KDE-4.5* and the
KDEPIM-4.4* translations. Am I aware that means extra work for KDE? Yes,
but I fail to understand why you (KDE) think this extra work should fall
to packagers.
