Yes, and in those two years it has been ported and work has been done in the 
frameworks branch.

I merely fixed problems I noticed that were still there in the port.

About "this late", I wasn't aware of any deadline other than the dependency 

I can understand your concerns to some degree, but the alternative would be to 
drop it.
So I decided to step up to (hopefully) prevent that.

If you feel better, I'd agree to disable the multiseg plugin right away (and 
only enable it again when I manage to fix it).
As I wrote, kget seems to work fine without it here, with a few more fixes I 
haven't committed yet (these are just fixes for porting bugs though, some of 
them one-liners even).

> Are you subscribed to the kget bugs in Bugzilla?  Would you volunteer to be?

No, I'm not subscribed.
But yes, I would volunteer if necessary.

And I do intend to work further on it, e.g. completely porting it away from 
kdelibs4support (that's out of scope for 17.12 though).

Kind Regards,
