What are the implications of the PackageKit upgrade? Is Warehouse no longer working after the new update?

I'm referring to this excerpt from the community metting this month.

14:36:49 <sledges> #info PSA: the next upgrade will remove harbour-warehouse and harbour-storeman, and we're calling community's help to get involved and upgrade the package-kit api that the next upgrade will change
14:37:06 <sledges> we tried to reach out to the author of warehouse, but it bore no fruit sadly
14:37:28 <Mister_Magister> sledges: better author of storeman
14:37:58 <M4rtinK> so what's the plan foreward for OpenRepos ?
14:38:19 <sledges> Mister_Magister: anything goes at this point
14:38:34 <Mister_Magister> sledges: what?
14:38:49 <sledges> M4rtinK: warehouse and/or storeman need to update the way they talk to packagekit in its new API
14:38:50 <M4rtinK> it's the main source of applications for a lot (majoriy ?) of Sailfish OS users due to Harbour limitations
14:39:16 <tadzik> the harbour store is also not available on community ports, or is it?
14:39:21 <Mister_Magister> yeah like i never go into harbour
14:39:22 <sledges> M4rtinK: can still download rpm through browser from openrepos
14:39:22 <Sfiet_Konstantin> mer contrib is a set of repo in which any community member can submit PRs before inclusion in Mer
14:39:23 <tadzik> maybe it is, nevermind
14:39:26 <Mister_Magister> always into openrepos
14:39:29 <sledges> tadzik: it is
14:39:41 <Mister_Magister> tadzik: ofcourse it is
14:39:53 <Mister_Magister> maybe you were using some *weak* port
14:40:15 <M4rtinK> so many ports will loose *all* user friendly application access ? that sounds pretty catastrophic
14:40:17 <tadzik> yeah, not sure where I got that idea now that I think of it
14:40:27 <Mister_Magister> sledges: you still can add repo manually :P
14:41:03 <Mister_Magister> M4rtinK: openrepos are main source of applications thats true
14:43:20 <sledges> let's discuss warehouse/storeman elsewhere, and we'll communicate properly, also in next meeting
