Oh, maybe I was under a wrong impression by our past discussion. As there 
haven't been code commits in many many years for any of them, the question was 
rather why keep releasing near bit-perfect copies of tarballs 12 times a year. 
The requirement for dropping them from Applications releases was to first get 
them converted to git, so that they _can_ be easily picked up again. A 
kdewebdev package from 2010 works the same as one from 2016, and no one is 
forced to drop it from their package repository.

At least klinkstatus still depends on kdepimlibs-4, which was last released 2 
years ago and conflicts with GpgME++ requirements of other applications since 

kfilereplace, if kept, may as well be moved to a different category - it seems 
to be in kdewebdev rather for historical reasons.

That would leave kimagemapeditor as the only application in kdewebdev.
