= Summary =

o Preparing for Fedora 9 Alpha: 
- rawhide is now frozen and kde should be ready for Fedora 9 Alpha 

o Upgrade path to KDE-4.0.0 (experiences from kde-redhat): 
- kdebase-workspace should be installed automatically during an upgrade 
(either in @kde-desktop or with Obsoletes: kdebase < 4) 
- Some upgraders seems to have problems with kdelibs/kdelibs4 -> 

o Compiz and KWin decorations (Compiz still uses old KWin 3 decorations): 
- Release Notes for kwin-4.0.0: 
- Compiz' kde-window-decorator is using KWin 3 API and libkdecoration will be 
removed from kdebase3 soon 
- kde-desktop-effects should either be removed or reworked to also include 
kwin's desktop effects and compiz (with emerald) 

o comps-f9.xml: 
- Packages that are obsolete now: d3lphin, kdeaddons, marble, ksudoku 
- Missing packages: extragear-plasma, kaider, okteta, kdegames3, 

o Open discussion: 
- Kubuntu is workarounding #378041 and #428212 for KDE3 with hacks. 
- These patches needs to be ported to KDE4. But there is enough time until F9 
to allow some time for hal to get fixed 
- LukasTinkl mentioned that upstream KDE would probably never support 
- knetworkmanager-0.7 branch (for NetworkManager-0.7) isn't compiling yet
