Version: (using KDE KDE 3.2.3)
Received through the Debian BTS (#261269):
kapptemplate's only mode of operation seems to be "create a new KDE project". It doesn't seem to be possible (and in fact some of the configure functions it defines make it /im/possible) to add a KDE component to an existing, autoconfiscated project, preferably as an optional feature (that can be disabled in configure).
kapptemplate isn't really maintained I think. And such a feature is definitly beyond a template - your user should try kdevelop :)
out of KAppTemplate scope.
In KDE 4.1, KAppTemplate projects are compatible with KDevelop so you'll be able to easily generate the same template from within KDevelop.
KAppTemplate is only a template generator, nothing more. Once the project is generated, you read the included README and then you're on your own!
KAppTemplate is maintaiined again by myself!
