meta-kf5 progress report

The meta-kf5 Yocto  layer is coming along nicely. Most of the modules are proving to be fairly easy to integrate, much thanks to the excellent ground work in meta-qt5, including the cmake_qt5 bbclass.

My plan for the summer vacation was to do one module a day, so around 5 would be ok. Until now I’ve done 9. Only KConfig has been providing any resistance (it does not like QT_NO_SESSIONMANAGER). My current pipe for tier 1 modules has 6 more candidates in it, so hopefully I can say that I’ve done 15 modules tomorrow night.

Right now, I have only one big worry – I have no code using the packages, so it is a bit of a if-it-compiles-it-works mentality right now. This should be fixed by integrating the test cases from the KF5 modules with ptest and building a test image. This is something that I’ll have to look at further along the road.
