Description

In february I noticed that qtwebkit, which seems to be defunct, only appears to be used by kdewebkit (which is a wrapper for it). Thread at http://lists.linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/blfs-dev/2018-February/034042.html

But that was a bit close to the 8.2 release. In the thread, Bruce suggested dropping them after the release, to give us time to identify if anything did break.

I forgot about this until I was looking to see what uses icu.

I will try to do this at the next kf5 update in the book. I was planning on kf5-5.46 with is scheduled for the first Saturday in May.

What I plan to do is just comment out kdewebkit in the kf5 md5sum list and archive qtwebkit. I'll then build all the kde packages inthe book and plasma and see if any problems arise.
