Hi TU,

KDE 4.1 will be moved to [extra] tonight or tomorrow. If you maintain packages 
in [community] which depend on KDE3 you might want to read this:

* Look for a new upstream release which can be used with KDE 4.
* If there is no new version change deps to kdelibs3 and try recompiling.
* try sourcing qt3.sh and kde3.sh from /etc/profile.d/
* If configure fails try adding --without-arts.
* Don't trust namcap saying there would be no dependency to kdelibs3. :-)
* If the build still fails with some undefind references, try biulding in a
  clean environment without kdelibs-4
* If nothing helps your package might depend on stuff from kdebase or other
  KDE packages. You might think about removing it from [community] then.
