Building packages from git: several questions

A few days ago we discussed rebuilding libarts from the Trinity sources.

Yet I would like clarification about all of the packages in the dependencies and libraries branch. Which are required, which are recommended, and what is an appropriate build order?


Build order presumed to be as listed (please correct!):

tqt3 or qt3 (is there a reason to build the latter rather than the former?)
tqtinterface (required)
arts (required)
dbus-1-tqt (required?)
dbus-tqt (required?)
tqca-tls (required?)
libart-lgpl (required?/recommended?)
avahi-tqt (recommended?)
python-tqt (recommended?)
sip4-tqt (recommended?)
tqscintilla (recommended?)


Build order: as needed for various packages.

kipi-plugins (recommended? which packages?)
libkdcraw (recommended? which packages?)
libkexiv2 (recommended? which packages?)
libkipi (recommended? which packages?)
libksquirrel (recommended? which packages?)
libtqt-perl (recommended? which packages?)
mlt (recommended? which packages?)
mlt++ (recommended? which packages?)
pytdeextensions (required?/recommended? which packages?)
python-trinity (required?/recommended? which packages?)

Second, are python-tqt, pytdeextensions, and python-trinity direct replacements for PyQt3 and PyKDE3? That is, do we stop building PyQt3 and PyKDE3?

Third, SIP is available on many/most distros. What is sip4-tqt just an add-on layer? When is that package required?

Fourth, seems libart is an oddball package. All of the others are installed but for most distros, libart from Trinity is an update/upgrade package process rather than an install.

Lastly, what is the deal with third-party/libreoffice?

I'll update the wiki as necessary once I'm no longer confused. :)
