please document clearly and publicly how to fetch and build the new set of 
repositories as one module.

in the past modules that have split up like this have done so with no 
documentation as to how to recreate the "whole module" build easily which has 
resulted in the loss of people who previously were regularly buliding the 

"use kdesrcbuild" and similar answers are not good enough, either: we need 
simple, straight-forward, copy-and-paste recipes to pass on to those who 
follow KDE from sources.

if there is no such documentation then i'll have to object to the splitting of 
this module. we've done enough damage to ourselves with the "split and worry 
about it later" approach.

thanks for your understanding ...
