Waste of resources – bye bye Debian KDE Team
Ok, I am giving up on the Debian KDE Team. After having updated about 200 packages and sent merge requests for all of them, most have been simply ignored, and the very same changes have been made over and over again.
It really seems that the Debian/KDE Team as a personal problem with me, and prefer to ignore work (here here here here). Not that I didn’t share what I have done with them. I prepared merge requests, after indication, I went through most of the packages to follow the very strict guidelines about changelog formatting to make the team (some of them) happy, and all I see is complete stonewalling.
Congratulations to the KDE/Qt Team in Debian, you have lost another one (not the first reading some email lists) who could help you share the work. Instead of actively interacting you did prefer to ignore, shame, and stonewalled anything coming from me.
I will continue providing my own KDE packages for Debian – I do expect that many packages especially in Plasma will continue to lag up to 2 years behind – but doing work to fix this is obviously not appreciated by the respective team.
PS: this post is not aggregated to Debian Planet, out of obvious reasons.
PPS: I have deleted all my KDE related forks and closed all merge requests from Debian Salsa (341 each).
