We want to simplify packaging and maintenance of Marble. And we want to make it easier for KDE application authors to link against the marble library by getting rid of a kde-edu dependency.

So starting with KDE 4.5 the Marble source code is supposed to be reorganized:

Contents

Marble Qt Library

  • It's Qt Only. No KDE dependencies.
  • Contains the actual Marble library. Suggested package name: "libmarble".
  • Contains the base data. This includes the most basic maps: Atlas, Satellite, OSM and Plain Map. Suggested package name: "libmarble-data".
  • Contains all base plugins.
  • Provides the Marble Qt application (Executable: "marbleqt") as an example application (Compilation of this part can be switched off at wish).
  • Located in SVN at kdesupport/libmarble
  • Provides Qt development documentation, bindings and tools for Marble. Suggested package name: libmarble-dev.

Marble KDE application

  • Depends on Marble Qt library (in kdesupport/libmarble).
  • Provides the Marble Application (Executable"marble"). Suggested package name: kdeedu-marble.
  • Provides the KPart. Actual location of this part in SVN needs to be evaluated for best reuse.
  • Provides optional data ( Moon, Historical Map, Precipitation, Temperature, etc.). Suggested package name: kdeedu-marble-data
  • Located in SVN at kdeedu/marble

Other

  • What should happen to the worldclock plasmoid? Move it to the other KDE plasmoids (which would depend on libmarble inside kdesupport).


Migration Plan

1. Jens-Michael ("jmho") starts to get rid of QTONLY in MarbleDirs. 2. Get rid of all the kde specific cmake code below marble/src/lib (no "if (QTONLY)" anymore)
