Description

Unsurprisingly, a large portion of the KDE packages depend on Qt5-Webengine somewhere in their dependency tree. I am curious, as a long time KDE user, what if anything the Parabola community has done here to liberate the dozens upon dozens of KDE packages that are not installable because of this missing dependency. If there is something I can do to help with this, I am definitely interested.

Here is a small sampling:

this is really a discussion better suited for the mailing list - there is no actual "bug" reported here - for example, is it actually possible to install any of those packages on parabola now?

it is also nearly a duplicate of #1290

there is a long standing open issue about chromium and friends, collecting all of the packages that are related - any news regarding any of them will be reported on that issue #1167
