Hey packagers,

A quick heads up about kdeedu-data strangeness.

The upcoming KDE Applications 14.12 release will have some
applications based on kdelibs4 and others based on kf5. Because some
applications that use libkdeedu/libkeduvocdocument are going to be
still based on kdelibs4 while others have already been ported to qt5
and kf5 there will be both libkdeedu and libkeduvocdocument tarballs
released. Because both used to contain a handful of kvtml files, we
moved them out into kdeedu-data which both libkdeedu and
libkeduvocdocument should depend on (or at least khangman(kdelibs4)
and kanagram(libkeduvocdocument) should depend on in order to run.

Now kdeedu-data uses ecm instructions to build like other kf5 based
applications. Is that going to be a problem to make both khangman and
kanagram run time depend on these packages, while kdeedu-data at build
time requires ecm to build?

I'm open to other solutions, but this is the best we could come up
with at this time.
