Because the spec file is simply *not finished* AND it was hanging on the 
check.mageia.org (so every packager could take it, make submittable and 
then we would have to reedit the changes.. - and this already happened).

Please take a look: 
Funda removed a lot of data from the spec - all external modules are 

Kadu is a Polish communicator (for the Polish gadu-gadu network) and we 
need all these modules. Kicer86 also wrote his own modules - like 
history-import, so we know what we are doing.

We reversed the Funda's changes and then we got stuck on 2 issues:
1) What to do with modules that support non-existing in Mga packages 
(like this mpris) - the decision was to remove requirements and include 
an README.urpmi with an adequate warning.
2) Replace ton of %lang(xy_AB) macros (kicer86 wasted too many days to 
add them..) by an adroid Mageia find-lang macro with an parameter 
--with-qt (that support .qm files)

For the point 2 it's already under discussion with my mentor - Oliver 
(obgr) and I'm waiting for his opinion. Then I'll propose a patch for 
our rpm-mageia-utils and so on.
