Whiteboard

[joern-schoenyan]
Alf Gaida from Siduction already packaged LXQt, Qterminal and maybe some other stuff, have a look at http://mentors.debian.net/packages/index
[gilir] That's nice, but it should be nice to have them under the lxde git umbrella, like the gtk ones. Also, I didn't check them all, but at least, having a -qt5 in every packages is not very nice, and IMO should not be used (qt4 is dropped in git anyway, nobody want to use a qt4 version).
[joern-schoenyan] I actually thought the same about that -qt5 suffixes. But I guess we could talk to Alf / the Siduction-LxQt team. Both teams could profit when we work together!
[gilir] Yes, if we can work all together, everyone will benefit form this
[joern-schoenyan] Kubuntu seem to work on Ubiquity-Qt5 as a GSoC project: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-devel/2015-March/009365.html
