Packaging KDE applications for Windows

Overview

Currently, several approaches exist towards packaging KDE applications for Windows, and we will try to outline each approach and the steps involved. Which approach (or approaches) you chose will depend on the type of your application, and your personal taste. The main benefits and drawbacks of each approach are listed in the respective sections.

Note that the approaches are not mutually exclusive, and in particular it is probably always a good idea to provide an emerge script.
