Hi Vit,

Not exactly "bundled libraries".

The worst thing that may happen is we have two versions of
libkgeomap/KF5: one compiled into digiKam/KF5 (not even as a shared),
another one later released as a shared library. This is not bad for
the release team, it is only bad in terms of maintainability for
developers of digiKam, KPhotoAlbum and others who might want to use

I will try to convince Gilles that libkgeomap should stay a public
shared library and be used by digiKam externally.
