Hi, after recent upgrade to kde5 I was left with this list orphaned packages:
Code:
All selected packages: =kde-apps/nsplugins-15.08.3 =kde-apps/kfind-15.08.3 =kde-apps/kgpg-15.08.3 =kde-apps/amor-15.08.3 =kde-apps/konq-plugins-15.08.3 =kde-apps/kuser-15.08.3 =kde-apps/kglobalaccel-15.08.3 =kde-apps/kuiserver-15.08.3 =kde-apps/pairs-15.04.3 =kde-apps/kde-base-artwork-15.08.3 =kde-apps/kfmclient-15.08.3 =kde-apps/superkaramba-15.08.3 =kde-apps/konqueror-15.08.3

I have kde-meta-15.12.3 installed, why aren't those packages pulled in as its dependency?

Could it be that kde-meta is a collection of packages instead of a package.
Removing it will mark all packages under it as orphaned.
If you have any packages installed that you did not install using kde-meta then the dependencies of those packages will not be marked as orphaned.
Did you try adding these to your @world favorites file?

EXTRA: I'm just making a guess here.

amor, pairs, superkaramba and artwork packages are dead. kuser and kgpg are conflicting with KDE PIM 5, thus are removed from meta.

The remaining packages so far are not part of kde-apps-meta for no particular reason - they are only ported to kf5 in the 16.12 release at the end of the year, if someone really wants a really old insecure konqueror, they can emerge it manually.
