Proposed Topics

  • Qt5 --> Andy?
  • KDE frameworks --> Patrick?
  • Packaging / NSIS / MSI how to integrate in emerge even better.
  • "Autoupdates" for Standalone software like Kontact / Amarok / Calligra
  • Sandboxing
  • Oxygen or a more Native look as the default?
  • Tests / Unittests (Maybe more of a "to hack" on topic, but It would be cool if we could make better use of them)

Things to hack on

  • Update mingw-w64 to gcc 4.7 as 4.6 is neded by Qt 5
  • Patch Mysql to build with mingw
  • Removing Version numbers from filenames in emerge
  • Let's build the frameworks?
  • Website
