Do you use the SDK on Saucy?
As you might know the release process of the Ubuntu SDK tools
(ubuntu-sdk meta package, QtCreator and our ubuntu/cmake/remotelinux
plugins) is that we push the latest improvements and bugfixes to the
actively developed series (14.10 right now)
Then we backport to the Current Stable Release (14.04) and to the
Supported Release (13.10) and publish the packages in the SDK PPA :
Obviously the development of the QtCreator follows the Qt baseline. So
when the 3.0 QtCreator migrated to the Qt 5.2 we also moved on with our
Right now 14.10 and 14.04 both has the lates Qt 5.2, but Saucy has the
5.0 Qt release.
So far we have brewed the Saucy backport of all Qt modules what is
needed by the latest QtCreator and all the recent improvements/fixes in
an isolated PPA:
This PPA was used for testing and dogfooding.
So here is the question. If you are on Saucy and want to use the latest
goodies from the SDK (1) you either configure this qt5-beta-proper and I
keep pushing the new UITK and the QtCreator packages to this PPA, or (2)
I copy over the content of the qt5-beta-proper to the SDK PPA and keep
pushing there our updates.
Neither of them is a clean and nice solution. Our target is to keep the
SDK PPA clean from application runtime packages and limit its content to
strictly SDK bits.
The good news is that the legwork is done already :)
I am looking forward to hear your opinion.
