The proposal to merge lp:~timo-jyrinki/kubuntu-packaging/qt4-qtchooser-migration-raring into lp:~kubuntu-packagers/kubuntu-packaging/qt has been updated.

Description changed to:

* Migrate to use qtchooser for Qt5 co-installation support
    - Libraries co-installed, executables managed by qtchooser
    - Packages will need build-dep on qt4-default to build against Qt4
    - Symlinks left for binaries that had -qt4 via alternatives
  * Clean alternatives on upgrade
  * Add qt4-default package

The package has been so far tested in https://launchpad.net/~canonical-qt5-edgers/+archive/qt5-proper to for example successfully build the qtcreator in there (which uses 'qmake-qt4').

The changes are identical to what's has been done in the Debian experimental branch at http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-kde/qt/qt4-x11.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/experimental over the last month. One of the most interesting parts is probably the qt4-default and qt5-default packages which provide the default.conf symlink for qtchooser.

qtchooser packaging is available at http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-kde/qt/qtchooser.git;a=shortlog (Debian) and https://code.launchpad.net/~timo-jyrinki/+junk/qtchooser (raring), against the snapshot release http://macieira.org/qtchooser/qtchooser-9-g8f08405.tar.gz
