Bug Description

On a test build in my ppa, current simon FTBFS on all architectures when built against OpenCV 3.1 in proposed.

As the current simon packages depend on OpenCv 2.4, this is likely to block the ongoing OpenCV 3.1 transition if not resolved.

See the sample attached build log for amd64.

I have subsequently tried a build of the latest simon beta (0.4.90), but this also FTBFS in artful.

Had a play with a few options, but still get a FTBFS.

Simon seems to have a work in progress Qt5/Kf5 port

https://cgit.kde.org/simon.git/log/?h=kf5

So one option here would be temporarily removing Simon from artful archive, with a view to bringing it back once that port has a release, or is near enough for a decent git snapshot build.

Rik, I agree that seems the best idea. Perhaps ping the Simon devels and see if it can return soon, or will have to wait.

There is active porting work going on, but I've not seen a mention of Simon.

Pinged on IRC for now.

Release of a KF5 port there is still under 'distant future'.

Oooooh. Fails the same building against the old OpenCV. :/

There doesn't appear to have been any progress on resolving this for close to three months. I'm going to go ahead and remove the package from artful-proposed so that it's not showing up on proposed-migration as requiring action. If a fix becomes available and the Kubuntu team wishes to reupload it, we can fast-track this through NEW again based on the past package history.

Removing packages from artful-proposed:
 simon 0.4.1-0ubuntu11 in artful
Comment: Ubuntu-only package, FTBFS with current toolchain; LP: #1699794
1 package successfully removed.

This removal seems fair, as there has been little to zero progress for a
0.5 KDE4 release, and certainly nothing to fix this FTBFS. Plus the KF5
porting branch has not seen an upstream commit for 6 weeks.
