+      <p>The KDE on &os; team focuses on packaging and making sure
+	that the experience of KDE and Qt on &os; is as good as
+	possible.</p>
+      <p>This quarter, in addition to the regular updates to the KDE,
+	Qt and related ports, there have also been some changes behind
+	the scenes: our development repository has moved to GitHub,
+	and &os; is now part of KDE's official continuous integration
+	(CI infrastructure).</p>
+      <p>After the X.Org and GNOME ports teams, the KDE on &os; team
+	has moved its development repository to GitHub.  This should
+	make it easier for others to collaborate with us via pull
+	requests, and by basing all our changes on top of the official
+	ports tree we also hope this reduces the amount of conflicts
+	and churn we need to deal with when landing big updates across
+	the tree.  We would like to thank iXsystems for hosting and
+	supporting our area51 Subversion repository for many
+	years.</p>
+      <p>&os; has finally joined KDE's CI (Continuous Integration)
+	system as a tier-1 platform.  KDE CI builds all the KDE
+	sources — 70 frameworks, the KDE Plasma Desktop and a
+	plethora of KDE Applications — continuously, straight
+	from KDE's git repositories.  There is strong commitment from
+	upstream and the downstream KDE-&os; team to reduce the amount
+	of patching in the KDE ports to as little as possible.  The
+	first effects are being felt in expanding unittests to
+	&os;-specific situations, and in extending Qt to handle &os;
+	filesystems better.  In addition to the KDE sysadmins, we
+	would also like to extend our thanks to Adriaan de Groot, who
+	is both a KDE committer and part of our KDE on &os; team, for
+	spearheading the efforts.</p>
+      <p>The following big updates were landed in the ports tree this
+	quarter:</p>
+      <ul>
+	<li>CMake was updated to 3.8.0 and 3.8.2</li>
+	<li>KDE Frameworks were updated to 5.33, 5.34 and 5.35</li>
+	<li>The Calligra office suite was updated to 3.0.1, the first
+	  release in the ports tree to be based on KDE Frameworks 5,
+	  and the latest stable release upstream</li>
+	<li>The Konversation IRC client was updated to 1.7.2, the
+	  latest upstream release and the first ports version based on
+	  KDE Frameworks 5</li>
+	<li>KchmViewer was updated to 7.7, which is based on KDE
+	  Frameworks 5</li>
+	<li>LabPlot was updated to 2.3.0 and 2.4.0, and is now based
+	  on KDE Frameworks 5</li>
+	<li>QtCreator was upated to 4.2.2 and subsequently to
+	  4.3.0</li>
+	<li><tt>py-sip</tt> was updated to 4.19.2, PyQt4 to 4.12 and PyQt5 to
+	  5.7.1</li>
+	<li>Several fixes for ARMv6 were landed to the Qt4 and Qt5
+	  ports — thanks to Mikaël Urankar</li>
+      </ul>
+      <p>After several review rounds and exp-runs, Tobias Berner
+	(tcberner@) finally made the Ninja generator the default for
+	CMake-based ports, so that <tt>devel/ninja</tt> is used
+	instead of (<tt>g</tt>)<tt>make</tt> in most cases.  This
+	should make most builds faster, even if only by a small margin.
+	Adriaan de Groot also wrote a blog post about the change.</p>
