Don't build KDE from metapackages

The problem is that when uninstall Discover or another application it deletes the entire DE.

Re: Don't build KDE from metapackages

You can easily enough mark the packages as manually installed after installing them via metapackages so they're not removed when it autoremoves...

This is inconvenient and requires additional knowledge and action

Re: Don't build KDE from metapackages

But there's those that WANT the packages to all uninstall automatically when they remove the meta package, so you can't have it both ways.  Easier to mark packages manually installed then to go through and manually check if every package is actually still required by another package and remove it if not.
