kdepim 4.14 + unittest

As you saw I continue to work on 4.14 branch, in parallel I work on KF5 porting. Why do I continue to work on 4.14 ? Because KF5 kdepim version will not arrive before that AkonadiNext will be stable, so it will take time. AkonadiNext is writing from scratch. I don’t know if you remember…
