Hello all,

as promised earlier, I prepared a repository inclusing patches for more
than 300 KDE packages. I will not have time to work on them, though.
Others will need to implement the packages based on this preperations.

The repo contains prepared guix package descriptions for more than 300
KDE packages. The idea is to take a lot of stupid work from the
shoulders of those who want to add a KDE package and automatically
prepare as much as possible.

Prepared are
- name, version, url, hash
- synopsis (two variants)
- description (two variants)
- license (needs to be verified)
- inputs and native-inputs
- store-path of the archive

The synopsis and descriptions are taken from Debian and Mageia, chosen
by what was easy to access for me.

The license is taken from Debian but needs to be rechecked. Maybe
OpenSuSE is a good place to look since they seem to have a strong focus
on this.

The inputs and native-inputs are taken from the `CMakeList.txt` file,
which I processed and mapped many known requirements to guix's package
names. For your convenience unprocessed content of the `CMakeList.txt`
file has been put into the description, so you hopefully find all
necessary information there.

The repository can be found at
<>, detailed description on
how to work with it is available ins the README there. If you have any
enhancement requests, please let me know.

(I refained from sending the patches to some mailinglist since it is
more then 880KB data and more than 300 patches).
