Project ID: 26529


KDEPIM for CentOS 8 and RHEL 8.

Use these packages as a stand-in until the KDE SIG adds them to EPEL-playground.

What currently works?

KMail and Korganizer are currently built, packaged and working. Rest of Kontact/PIM suite may be added.

And there's more!

As a bonus, includes bits that are currently missing/broken and required to install some KDE SIG packages on CentOS (such as poppler-qt5 for okular).

What if there's no changelog message?

PACKAGERS: If a SPEC file has been modified, but there is no changelog message detailing the change to the upstream RHEL/Fedora/Kolab srpm, check to see if a build dependency for perl-generators has been automagically commented out:

# BuildRequires: perl-generators

Until RHBZ 1595854 is made public, I don't want to sign my name to any solution or workaround.
