so we have Jenkins ready to build .Appx packages for us now, thanks to @bcooksley : https://invent.kde.org/sysadmin/binary-factory-tooling/commit/aeddc47b0ca4dcdef64044226b99d9b78a0156a7

but the builds are not successful yet. We need to land this patch to have the builds done right : https://phabricator.kde.org/D23209

After that, we should have the .Appx packages signed by the official KDE e.V key, ready for sideloading by users (with Developer Access) until we publish the app on the Windows Store! 🏓

reference patch : https://phabricator.kde.org/D23209 (merged already)

the builds are successfully being built on the CI now. We just need to iron out the kinks so it actually works like it should, on all systems.

If there is a build you think is publishable, will help you to get that done.
