It has been dropped in OBS about a year ago, probably because Packman decided 
to diverge from the OBS package anyway and build git versions instead (or 
maybe it was just considered unnecessary, I don't know).

But I agree, it would probably be a good idea to add it back in OBS. And I 
just saw that you did it already anyway, I think we should add an "Obsoletes: 
k3b-codecs too though if we don't want to split out the codecs into a separate 
package... ;-) )

But we still only package the KDE4 based 2.0.3 currently.
Should not matter as soon as the KF5 version is actually released, and 13.2 
(where it would be better to use the KDE4 version) will be out of support soon 

I'd suggest to still keep the packages on Packman though for now (for 13.2 
because it is a newer version, for the rest because there is no "official" KF5 
package yet).

Kind Regards,
