* KDE 4.2.3 update status
* Qt 4.5.1 update status
* KDE 4.2.85 status (F12 Rawhide) 

= Summary =

o Delta RPMs:
* kpackagekit in its current version supports delta-rpms provided by yum-
* So the usual huge KDE updates would benefit from the smaller delta-rpms if 
enabled by default.
* The current release decision for Fedora 11 is to not install yum-presto by 
* We'll stick with this decision: It's too late in the release cycle to push 
it on the KDE live images. 

o leonidas-kde-theme update:
* The final version of leonidas-kde-theme was built and tagged today. [1]
* It matches the current leonidas-backgrounds (updated yesterday), adds two 
subpackages and re-enables labels.
* The update should be tested by all available people. 

o KDE 4.2.3 update status:
* KDE 4.2.3 is already available in updates-testing for F-9, F-10 and F-11. 
* Extragear packages for KDE 4.2.3 were built and will be submitted for 
updates-testing soon.
* An update for the weather dataengine in kdebase-workspace will be backported 
from KDE 4.3 if testing goes fine. 

o Qt 4.5.1 update status:
* Tracker bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=Qt451
* Qt 4.5.1 is now in updates-testing for F-11 and F-10, F-9 will be added with 
the next push. [6,7,8]
* Two regressions in Qt 4.5.0 are fixed by this update (texmaker, jabbim), but 
three new regressions appeared (rssnow plasmoid, ksysguard, Amarok 2.0).
* The status of regressions vs. fixes will be evaluated in a week.
* Two patches are worth considering a backport:
- A possible fix for the rendering issues [9]
- A fix for a leak of file descriptors in QTemporaryFile: [10]

o Open discussion:
* strigi-0.6.4-4.fc10 [11] will be pushed to stable although it was reported 
to not fix #496620 [12] completely: smb:/// apparently still crashes, but at 
least the crash when checking the properties of / was fixed.
* Importing KDE 4.2.85 in F12 was started.
