Re: Closing old Plasma 4 bugs




Yes, in fact I work for a company some of whose employees and customers use RHEL 7 (and 6, and 5, believe it or not...). In the end, I don't think it's relevant to us. KDE Plasma 4 wasn't the default shell in any of these distros anyway, so we are talking about an inherently old, niche use case. And anyway, Red Hat is expected to provide support for the very old software shipped in these distros, not upstreams like us.

Hello,

Just to remind you that companies using KDE/Plasma on RHEL7 are still using plasma 4.
I don't know if it has an impact but in case I wanted to point it out.

Cheers,
Olivier

Kubuntu 18.04  has now now been out for a month, so if there are no
further objections, I'll begin preparations for this Plasma 4 mass bug
close.

Hello folks,
We have more than 2,500 Plasma 4 bugzilla tickets that we don't intend
to look at or triage. We've already prevented new tickets from being
filed, but it doesn't do anyone any good to just have the old ones
sitting there. My sense is that most of the relevant bugs and wishlist
items are already represented in the plasmashell product, so what do you
think about doing a mass-close?

I was thinking of closing them all with one of the following two
messages (top one for bugs, bottom one for wishlist items). What do you
think?

For bugs:
=========

Hello!

This bug was filed for KDE Plasma 4, which reached end-of-support status
in October 2015. Developers have not been triaging Plasma 4 bugs since
that time. Happily, because KDE Plasma 5's desktop shell was been almost
completely rewritten for better performance and usability, it is likely
that this bug has already been resolved in Plasma 5. Additionally, bug
triaging resources are extremely limited; if you would like to get
involved in this effort, please see
https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved#Bug_Triaging

Accordingly, and we hope you understand why we must close this bug. If
the issue described  here is still present in KDE Plasma 5.12 or later,
please feel free to open a new ticket in the "plasmashell" product after
reading https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved/Bug_Reporting

Thanks for your understanding!

For wishlist items:
===================

Hello!

This feature request was filed for KDE Plasma 4, which reached
end-of-support status in October 2015. Developers have not been triaging
Plasma 4 requests since that time. Happily, because KDE Plasma 5's
desktop shell was been almost completely rewritten, it is likely that
this feature request has already been implemented in Plasma 5, or is no
longer applicable. Additionally, bug triaging resources are extremely
limited; if you would like to get involved in this effort, please see
https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved#Bug_Triaging

Accordingly, and we hope you understand why we must close this feature
request. If the requested feature is still not implemented in KDE Plasma
5.12 or later, please feel free to open a new ticket in the
"plasmashell" product after reading
https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved/Bug_Reporting

Thanks for your understanding!

Hi Nate,

had that on my TODO list, but happy to see you taking over for this task.

I suggest to wait until Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is released, ideally a month
longer to give people with LTS requirements time to update it.
