There were mainly 2 issues with the new Qt5/KF5 Konqueror:
KDE#370177 is fixed in 17.04 (a one-line fix).
KDE#372777 is a missing feature in the KWebEnginePart (missing KWallet /
password saving support). It can be worked around by defaulting to the
KWebKitPart instead, which is still available and can now use the revived
Qt5WebKit with all its security fixes and new features (instant fix, just
tweak the packaging and/or comps to drag it in and patch the priority in the
.desktop file). Or somebody can look into porting the missing methods to the
KWebEnginePart (by looking at the code in QupZilla, I think it should not be
hard, but of course harder than just switching the default backend).
Alternatively, QupZilla is also a good default. Firefox is not and should
just finally go away.
We currently ship 2 'package managers' (3 if you count PackageKit).
I propose we drop kde-discover - and keep dnfdragora (and PackageKit) in
the live image.
+1, though if you decide to default to Dnfdragora (which I would endorse
completely), you should also consider using the Dnfdragora updater instead
of plasma-pk-updates for consistency (but it is not a necessity, just
something to consider).
We currently ship 3 image programs in the live image. Okular & Gwenview as
viewers, Kolourpaint as an editor.
I propose we drop Gwenview and keep Okular and Kolourpaint in the image.
I think this should also be considered. Okular can actually view a lot of
image types. But of course it does not offer the kind of functionality the
specialized Gwenview offers.
