I am maintaining qalculate-kde and would like to keep it in extra. I
prefer it over qalculate-gtk and it seems logical to keep
qalculate-kde along with qalculate-gtk and libqalculate in extra. Why
do you want to move kdelibs3 to community? If it's because it's
orphaned, I can adopt it and qt3 as well.  I suppose they are low
