Thanks for the status update!

As far as I know, fedora will push ahead and include bluez5 in their
upcoming release which should help us.
I assume the issues with KDE will be dealt with in Fedora
and Debian KDE maintainers can pick up whatever solution
Fedora used.

If we're going to block on blueman, that might be a real problem though...
Quoting from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Bluez5 :
"Blueman is abandoned upstream and is going to be dropped from Fedora 20."

I can help but wonder if the Debian maintainer of blueman is willing
to invest enough in this package given the lack of upstream support.

Thanks! That will be very helpful. Feel free to also CC
pkg-gnome-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org to keep the rest of the
gnome packaging team up to date.
