Upstream is asked about unbundling:

Comment 4 Raphael Groner 2016-03-28 08:04:41 UTC
ping? Any news here? Upstream of psi-plus plans to release 0.16 finally with unbundling of iris, see also (blocked) bug #1292095.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2016-03-28 11:40:29 UTC
No news

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2016-03-28 11:41:08 UTC
Besides, this isn't a blocker, psi-plus currently bundles iris, it can continue to do so for any new Qt5 build you work on in the short-term, can't it?

Comment 7 Raphael Groner 2016-03-28 13:28:31 UTC
The blocked bug is about traversal of psi-plus build system to use cmake-qt5, also at upstream. Therefore, we need unbundled libs, such as iris also.

Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2016-03-28 13:38:00 UTC
So is upstream going to unbundle from psi-plus?

That means they need to also actually make a formal/separate iris release too, is that planned?  If so, when?

As said, it's *expected* with the (hopefully now for real) promised and long awaited psi-plus 0.16 release, officially. There is an upstream issue about it that sounds quite interesting.

Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2016-03-28 14:00:17 UTC
OK, so when/if a new iris release happens, then I will commit to supporting Qt5 in fedora's iris packaging

Comment 11 Raphael Groner 2016-03-28 14:19:39 UTC
That sounds like a plan to me. Thanks.

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2017-02-15 15:23:17 UTC
I refreshed iris snapshot in rawhide... mostly because there was a related security issue and kde upstream (where kopete bundles a copy of iris) had some inquiries about unbundling iris.

So, ended up taking a closer look at iris buildsystem (while rebasing patches).

Looks like the next major hurdle will be making iris' Qt5 build parallel-installable with Qt4 iris.

Comment 13 Raphael Groner 2018-08-30 00:16:52 UTC
IMHO we should close here as WONTFIX because nothing happened so far at upstream towards parallel installation for both qt4 and qt5. Any objections?

Comment 14 Rex Dieter 2018-08-30 14:25:44 UTC
that fine (for now).

We can revisit things when/if upstream psi and/or iris actually does anything to require action on our part.
