The aim of this page is to list all things related to release extragear packages on a regular bases. If you are an application maintainer in extragear and want tarballs at every kde release, add the application in the list below.

You are responsible for updating changelogs, news files and version numbers.


To indicate that you want your application released together with the KDE release schedule, you need to edit a config file in git.


In this file you can indicate "kde_release = yes" if you want to be included in the next release of KDE. You can remove or add it at any time you wish.

You can also add a "version = x.y.z-beta4" setting. This will be used in the tarball's name. If you leave it empty, it will use the version name of the kde release it is part of.

Tarball comments

If you are a packager and have some comments about a particular pakackage, you can indicate the problem below. Be sure to mention your email or irc nick so we can contact you. To be clear: don't add application bugs here, only packaging bugs:

  • ktorrents cmake does not errors on a missing libgmp3-devel and needs QCA2
  • kpovmodeler compilation could fail because of this freetype bug
  • no translated docs. anyone know an app that has docbook and that's translated?
  • ligature requires bliz and has no COPYING file
