kdevelop: CVS integration not present (RFE)
Last modified: 2008-07-06 15:38:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Vanished in Fedora 9. Worked fine in Fedora 8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
kdevelop requires kdesdk version 3 for this, which isn't present in F9 (kdesdk
version 4 is).
Will kdevelop 4 support CVS with kdesdk 4?
we can keep this open as a feature request, could be possible to include the
parts of kdesdk3 to make things work here.
The problem is that it's not just a KDE 3 library, it depends on a KDE 3
service (cvsservice) too. The apps talk to that service through DCOP. I'm not
sure that service, if we installed it, would get started properly in KDE 4.
(Does this feature work in a non-KDE desktop? If not, it probably won't work in
KDE 4 either.)
Actually, the KDE 4 cvsservice exports a D-Bus interface almost identical to
the KDE 3 DCOP interface, it might be possible to hack KDevelop to use that
D-Bus interface through qt3-dbus.
Actually, the KDE 3 service is started by this:
> if (KApplication::startServiceByDesktopName("cvsservice",
> QStringList(), &error, &appId))
so I guess it would work with the KDE 3 one.
And patching things to the KDE 4 one sounds like a lot of work, the KDevelop
cvsservice integration is almost 500 KB of code. :-(
Based on the above comments should this be closed as WONTFIX?
Well, in principle we could package a kdesdk3 or cvsservice3...
