New Interfaces for kdesrc-build
I figured out a solution to a hardware troubleshooting problem I’ve had going off and on for at least a couple of years. I feel like others might run across it and, not knowing anywhere better to note it, suppose I might as well dump it on my blog and hope search engines can make it available to those who need it.
A few years back, I shifted kdesrc-build to a release model where it was to be used essentially straight from the git-master version. This was both beneficial from a time management perspective, and also reflected the ongoing reality of how it was actually being used, since most developers were using kdesrc-build directly from git by then to take advantage of ongoing updates to the sample KF5 configurations.
The last official release of the kdesrc-build tool to build KDE was 1.15.1, nearly three years ago. For some perspective, this is when we were in the process of preparing KDE Software Compilation 4.9 for release, and nearly 2 years before the first technological preview of KDE Frameworks 5.
