why kdegames and other are gone?

Asked by Hanmac on 2015-05-20

is there a answer why from utopic to vivid all metapackages like kdegames are gone?
i used kdegames to install all games and to keep then updated, but now its a bit more difficult than before.

the changelog did say something about "kubuntu has its own meta packages",
but that doesnt seems to be true for the kdegames meta package.

There seems to be something wrong

compare
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/utopic/+source/meta-kde
and
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/vivid/+source/meta-kde

Especially the vivid link is weird. The heading shows a list of 18 packages, but there is only one binary package built.

I suggest you create a bug report.

i did make a ticket for that:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/meta-kde/+bug/1457004

it seems that the author did removed to much or did break it, but its funny that no one seems to have noticed that.

Can you help with this problem?
