Qt Recently a project called 'Qt Modularization' was initiated. This is a project that aims to modularize Qt at every level. As you may know already, Qt is currently modularized on the DLL level; each module has its own DLL. However, the project as a whole is still monolithic; all the code is hosted in a single repository, you cannot build a leaf module without building the modules on which it depends. This project aims to change that, so that the modules are hosted in different repositories, with separate maintainers, and modules may have different release schedules.

Thanks to my typical linux installation upgrading non-monolithicly I end up saving tons of bandwidth, hence megatons of times. And because I save time, my linux box, as a bonus, is more safe on average.

What are the alternatives?
* mega 5GiB update every two months
* update only major apps
* never update

Btw, upgrading half-the-distro on a typical linux installtion typically only happens when upgrading the-whole-distro.
