kipi-plugins standalone release




kipi-plugins used to be released standalone but in 2015 it moved to be part of Digikam releases.  Libkipi itself is released as part of KDE Applications.  Digikam has now stopped including kipi-plugins in its releases but they are still used by Gwenview and maybe Spectacle and kphotoalbum so we should keep them around until everything has moved onto replacements such as Purpose or Digikam's new plugins.

So I propose a standalone release with version 5.9.1

Here's a tar I made just now with version not yet bumped
http://embra.edinburghlinux.co.uk/~jr/tmp/kipi-plugins-5.9.0.tar.xz

Then I propose we move it into KDE Applications so the release gets done regularly and it's alongside libkipi and use the KDE Apps 19.04 style version numbers.

Does that make sense?

Also note to self Gwenview asks to install photolayoutseditor plugin when it can't find any but that plugin was removed ages ago.
