 Replying to [comment:5 rjvbertin@…]:

 Or {{{kf5-frameworks}}} and {{{kf5}}}?

 for-it that way.


 > There's always the possibility to generate a slew of subports
 programmatically, but that would make sense only if all those subports
 have the same dependencies.

 If I - perhaps - create a script for this job it would do everything
 programmatically. I believe that Harald's scripts also do that using KDE's
 dependency information.

 > Declaring a dependency on `port:kf5` doesn't mean you have to link in
 all those frameworks (just like depending on `port:qt5-mac` doesn't mean
 you link with all Qt components.

 Good point. But still, if you do it on a fine-granular level you only
 include a few {{{kf5}}} ports instead of the whole set of 60 frameworks.

 > Again, suppose it turns out that you end up installing just about all
 KF5 frameworks when you actually want to install systemsettings5, kate,
 konsole, KDevelop, KDE PIM, kdesvn and digiKam (just to name the ones I
 use regularly). In that case, isn't it much easier to have only a single
 port they need to depend on?

 I agree there. Let's see how it works out, if I find more time to deal
 with this submission... It's not top prio for me ATM, as you know. :)

 > There *is* a kdesrc script that supposedly takes care of the whole build
 process, no?

 Yes, but I am not using that.

 > Hmmm, and in true hipster fashion you'd be doing that at a table in the
 Restaurant at the End of the Universe? ;)

 At table No. 42, of course. ;)
