How the KDE community packages for SLE in PackageHub were done
Submitting more than 400 new packages to Backports
I'm Antonio Larrosa, from Málaga (Spain). I've been a KDE developer since 1997. Since 1998, I've been a KDE representative for Spain where I've given more than 80 talks about KDE, development and FLOSS. In 2000-2001 I worked for a year at SUSE while I was studying. In 2004 I got a degree in Mathematics at the University of Málaga. During 2003-2013 I worked as product manager and main developer of a software archiving system used in many TV networks and public administrations around the world. In 2005 I was the head organizer of the Akademy conference held at the university of Málaga. From 2007 to 2013 I was an associated professor at the same university, where I teached "Operating Systems Design". GSoC mentor three times (2011/2013 with KDE, 2016 with openSUSE). In August 2013 I joined the openSUSE team at SUSE and later moved to the SLE Desktop Team.
This talk will explain how the KDE packages were prepared and submitted to Package Hub so SLE users could enjoy them. Missing dependencies, rpmlint complaining about valid packages, not fully available dependencies, missing branding packages... It wasn't an easy path to travel but it was worth it. This talk will explain the problems found and how they were solved with the hope to make it easier for others to submit their packages to Package Hub.
