As reported in another mail, I can build tdebindings against both ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.1. I can build xparts too, but not qtsharp. Although the package builds without failures I believe the package is nonetheless incomplete. So there remains some work with this package.

I want to see a tdebindings testing guideline written at the wiki for packagers and developers to ensure they are building tdebindings correctly. For example, how does a person know the dcopc bindings built correctly? A C program with dcop calls, probably to pop up kdialog messages or to change the volume of a media player. Do those test directories that are part of the package sources do this? When I look at the final tdebindings binary package I don't see anything obvious to indicate a bin file that might be a testing tool.

Does anybody have experience with this?

I am willing to write the guideline but need technical help.
