Dear Harald

Just a note to say this is awesome! It is really exciting to see so much automation in KCI. We've been using a similar tool chain at work, and its alot of effort to set this stuff up and get it running smooth.
You've been doing a great job, one that I am just beginning to appreciate

All the best

Impossible to say precisely. The 822 jobs are all the utopic/vivid
unstable/stable combinations we have. They are based on 190 distinct
sources. Between the three upstream release bundles we have frameworks
(67) plasma (40) apps (177). Out of those we integrate all frameworks,
plasmas as well as 83 apps sources. So we are still missing about 100
apps that have not yet been ported to kf5.
Or in concrete terms out of the current upstream release bundles we
are integrating 190 out of 284 sources (66%).

A pretty inaccurate query for stuff depending on kde4libs suggests 554
*binary packages* that still depend on it. This number is including
recently ported apps (~40), so we can probably go with <=500 binary
packages that depend on kde4libs of which the majority seem to be
kdepim+extragear+calligra+brokenplasmoids, the rest is random stuff
from kde-apps or elsewhere.
Excluding the broken plasmoids we are probably at around 450 binary
packages that aren't ported to kf5. That number probably best be cut
in half to account for the inaccurate query and the fact that a lot of
sources create >=2 binary packages. So let's go with a ballpark number
of 225 (this is again including apps from before), so without those we
are at about 131 sources that we have in the archive but are not part
of one of the three upstream release bundles.

Grand total would be approximately 190 out of 415 (284+131) sources =
44% integrated = 225 missing.

It did not. On a related note, since the switch from lxc to docker the
rate of blowing up for load reasons has decreased by 100% (the server
still suffers from heavy breathing because of all the tarball
compression though ;))
