KDE4 based packages in karmic (pkg-kde-tools)

After the release of Lenny in Debian they are starting to adopt KDE4 and KDE4-
based versions of packages in unstable now; and we're trying to stream-line
collaboration by using the same packaging tools.
In intrepid+jaunty we have largely used kde4.mk from CDBS. For karmic we will
use pkg-kde-tools instead. This means that all new and current packages on
update should transition to pkg-kde-tools.
If you care for a KDE4(-based) application, please help by changing it to use
pkg-kde-tools when a new upstream version is uploaded. If the (KDE4-version)
of the package is in Debian you should hopefully be able to do that by a
The two methods are largely compatible, so changing from kde4.mk to pkg-kde-
tools will in the simplest case be possible by:
1. In debian/rules change /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/kde4.mk to
2. Add pkg-kde-tools to build-depends.
Both for main and universe; please don't accept any new packages or any new
upstream versions of packages using kde4.mk .
