[kde-linux] Building KDEPIM 4.7 from the GIT repository

For several weeks building KDEPIM from GIT "origin/KDE/4.7" has failed with this error:

/usr/GIT/KDE/kdepim/messagecomposer/akonadisender.cpp:138: error: reference to 'Message' is ambiguous

However the tag v4.7.3 builds OK, indicating that the source was broken since release 4.7.3 was tagged. Now, release 4.7.4 has been tagged and it will not build.

Has anyone even considered that quality control is a better idea than hubris? Making changes to the code repository without first checking to see if the change will compile is simply a bad idea. Checking before commit would be consistent with TQM, but if the developers had a copy of the current release branch built from source, the problem would soon be found. As it is, KDE has no quality control (for the release branch) except for bug reports.
