A little while ago I was urged by some to include the dbus-qt
in core so that Konqueror could take advantage of HAL. It seems that
the Qt3 bindings are being dropped upstream in favor of the Qt4
bindings. The thread for this is here:
I am therefor dropping the package as there is no maintainer
for it. It has been suggested that Konqueror only uses a small subset
of the bindings and that those portions could be ported to and
maintained in hal-ioslave. If you feel this is important to you I would
file bugs upstream with the ioslave developers and point them to the
above mentioned thread.
I'm very surprised the KDE developers don't care that there won't be
support for hot-mounting volumes from now on until the 4.0 development
cycle ends (and it will likely be over one year).
I couldn't find those qt3 bindings mentioned in the thread anywhere
in KDE's SVN repository. If there's no replacement, I guess dropping
the dbus-qt package would be the only option at this time :-(
I will pull the subpackage next Friday so anyone with packages that
depends on it (which should be few to none since I had just enabled it)
have a weeks reprieve.
kdebase tests for the dbus-qt bindings at configure time. If it's not
already using it, the spec file may be missing a BuildRequires.
