That case is covered by the proposal to sync up
kdelibs/experimental/kactivities with kde:kactivities, as you then basically
do not need a separate kactivities, so nothing changes here.
Conversely, not synching on our side, but users wanting to use kactivities,
they'd either rely on the outdated version we're shipping in
kdelibs/experimental, or have to remove the kactivities stuff from the
packages, add dependencies to all the users, and add a separate package for
In my second life as packager, I've gone through exactly this process, and it
made me realize how much pain we cause to packagers with this. That's why I
want to avoid it by synching up.
So, any objections against it keeping those two in sync? (That would mean that
we'd basically do development in the separate repo, and move over the changes
on a regular basis, when we've given it sufficient testing to be comfortable
using it on real machines.
