Not that I'm complaining, but even though I reluctantly had to enable USE="semantic-desktop" globally in make.conf long ago in order to make kde work (and still have it enabled), I'm very surprised and confused. :?

When I did my usual emerge -upD @world which installed kde-4.11.0 today, I noticed that kdelibs, kactivities, kdepimlibs, kget, gwenview, plasma-workspace, systemsetting, dolphin, and kdebase-runtime-meta now have added a new (-semantic-desktop%*) yellow USE flag. (I only have 154 kde packages on this particular install- no kmail/kdepim stuff, if that would matter).

As far as I'm concerned this is good news (I've never been a big semantic-desktop fan), but I'm wondering if something has gone wrong, and I've messed up my config files somehow during the gnome/systemd removal fiasco nightmare I just finished on 5 different Gentoo installs, or that the kde and/or the Gentoo devs have dropped the semantic-desktop USE flag, or something else.

Anyone else seeing this, or know what's going on?

OK- found this on the dilfridge blog:

Last week we had our monthly Gentoo KDE team meeting; here are few details that are probably worth sharing.

So far we've provided the useflag "semantic-desktop" which in particular controls the nepomuk functionality. Some components of KDE require this functionality unconditionally, and if you try to build without it, bugs and build failures may occur. In addition, by now it is easily and reliably possible to disable e.g. the file indexer at runtime. So, we've decided that starting with KDE 4.11 we will remove the useflag and hard-enable the functionality and the required dependencies in the ebuilds. The changes are being done already in the KDE overlay in the live ebuilds (which build upstream git master and form the templates for the upcoming 4.11 releases).

That explains that! :D
