[SOLVED] kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons removed from [extra]

It looks like kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons was removed from the [extra] repository in the last 24 hours. This was a meta package that depended on the following 73 packages.

kdeplasma-addons-applets-bball  kdeplasma-addons-applets-binary-clock  kdeplasma-addons-applets-blackboard  kdeplasma-addons-applets-bookmarks  kdeplasma-addons-applets-bubblemon  kdeplasma-addons-applets-calculator  kdeplasma-addons-applets-charselect  kdeplasma-addons-applets-comic  kdeplasma-addons-applets-community  kdeplasma-addons-applets-dict  kdeplasma-addons-applets-eyes  kdeplasma-addons-applets-fifteenpuzzle  kdeplasma-addons-applets-filewatcher  kdeplasma-addons-applets-frame  kdeplasma-addons-applets-fuzzy-clock  kdeplasma-addons-applets-icontasks  kdeplasma-addons-applets-incomingmsg  kdeplasma-addons-applets-kimpanel  kdeplasma-addons-applets-knowledgebase  kdeplasma-addons-applets-kolourpicker  kdeplasma-addons-applets-konqprofiles  kdeplasma-addons-applets-konsoleprofiles  kdeplasma-addons-applets-lancelot  kdeplasma-addons-applets-leavenote  kdeplasma-addons-applets-life  kdeplasma-addons-applets-luna  kdeplasma-addons-applets-magnifique  kdeplasma-addons-applets-mediaplayer  kdeplasma-addons-applets-microblog  kdeplasma-addons-applets-news  kdeplasma-addons-applets-notes  kdeplasma-addons-applets-nowplaying  kdeplasma-addons-applets-paste  kdeplasma-addons-applets-pastebin  kdeplasma-addons-applets-plasmaboard  kdeplasma-addons-applets-previewer  kdeplasma-addons-applets-qalculate  kdeplasma-addons-applets-rememberthemilk  kdeplasma-addons-applets-rssnow  kdeplasma-addons-applets-showdashboard  kdeplasma-addons-applets-showdesktop  kdeplasma-addons-applets-social-news  kdeplasma-addons-applets-spellcheck  kdeplasma-addons-applets-systemloadviewer  kdeplasma-addons-applets-timer  kdeplasma-addons-applets-unitconverter  kdeplasma-addons-applets-weather  kdeplasma-addons-applets-weatherstation  kdeplasma-addons-applets-webslice  kdeplasma-addons-containments  kdeplasma-addons-runners-audioplayercontrol  kdeplasma-addons-runners-browserhistory  kdeplasma-addons-runners-characters  kdeplasma-addons-runners-contacts  kdeplasma-addons-runners-converter  kdeplasma-addons-runners-datetime  kdeplasma-addons-runners-dictionary  kdeplasma-addons-runners-events  kdeplasma-addons-runners-katesessions  kdeplasma-addons-runners-konquerorsessions  kdeplasma-addons-runners-konsolesessions  kdeplasma-addons-runners-kopete  kdeplasma-addons-runners-mediawiki  kdeplasma-addons-runners-spellchecker  kdeplasma-addons-runners-translator  kdeplasma-addons-runners-youtube  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-mandelbrot  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-marble  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-pattern  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-potd  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-qmlwallpapers  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-virus  kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-weather

Is there another package that replaces it? I'd like to install a similar selection. I use some of these, although I'm not certain which. Otherwise, would I have to manually install all of them? I think I have all of the KDE meta packages installed, from the output of pacman -Ss kde-meta.

'pacman -S kdeplasma-addons' works for me on my 32-bit Arch with [testing] repos enabled.

Re: [SOLVED] kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons removed from [extra]

I don't really want to enable [testing], but I think I see something similar in [extra]. I get confused as to how to identify groups vs. meta-packages. However, when I search with pacman -Ss kdeplasma-addons, I see many entries such as the following.

extra/kdeplasma-addons-applets-bball 4.14.3-3 (kde kdeplasma-addons) [installed]

Does this mean these packages are now only available (from [extra]) as the kdeplasma-addons group, and not as a meta-package? I'd prefer the latter.

Yes. There is no meta package anymore since kdeplasma-addons for KDE4 is not released anymore upstream since 14.12

Sorry, I don't entirely understand. Are you saying that the 73 sub-packages are no longer being released upstream?

Correct. Last release was 4.14.3 in November.

Re: [SOLVED] kde-meta-kdeplasma-addons removed from [extra]

Ah okay, thanks. FWIW I grepped through ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc and identified four that I used. It's a pity they are dead, since there were a few good ones there.

=EDIT=
Oh, that was just for kdeplasma-addons-applets-*. I missed kdeplasma-addons-containments and kdeplasma-addons-wallpapers-potd.
