I am currently working on this bug. It's the first time I've delved into KDE, so I have a a couple of questions, which I hope someone can help me with. I should have this done in a couple of days.

1. Is it feasible to try to export the UmlView objects before the call to the kapplication->exec()? 

  I notice that the images are not fully rendered just yet - I'm assuming it's necessary to call exec() first, wait a few cycles, and then do the export.

Which means i'll probably want to add a new KAction, "export all views" (since each .xmi file can have more than a single UmlView). Fortunately, each view remembers its filename.

2. I'm familiar with qmake .pro files where you add things to HEADERS and SOURCES.

   I found Makefile.am, which contains SOURCES, but where do I add the HEADERS? In particular, if I am adding a new QObject derived class with signals/slots, how do I tell the make system to do its moc thing on it in KDE?

3.   After I change Makefile.am, what is the correct step to properly rebuild the project?
