If we engage with individuals or local organizationd,I believe it would be good to also tell them something along the lines of "and btw if you feel your community needs more time to organize this,feel free to send us a proposal for 2021".

Okay. Put me and @skadinna and, say, @jriddell in charge of that list. Sebas is not very active any more and Lydia is often unavailable because of work or travel. Promo must not have to rely on third parties that are often absent when they are needed.

Are those two the same place? Can we send to both kde-announce and kde-press-announce just in case? Or will that cause problems? We would not be doing this very often, maybe once or twice a year at the current rate. Excuse me for the barrage of questions.

paulb added a comment to T11623: Approve email sent to kde-announce@kde.org mailing list.

Just as a side note, the kde-announce list tends to be more focused on final consumers of our press announcements, while that looked like a message aimed at journalists.
Was the correct message sent to the list?

Please pay attention to the way this idea is presented. Technically Phabricator provides a component which does this (harbormaster). It is not marked as "stable", but it does exist, and I think that sysadmins experimented with it. So it was allowed too.

I was told that the websites need to be deployed with binary-factory (see https://invent.kde.org/sysadmin/ci-tooling/merge_requests/17), but it's probably an exception. One of the cool new functionality of the integrated ci is that this allows to run unit test for merge request and this feature can help the devs to review the change faster.

paulb added a comment to T11080: KDE for Big Enterprises.

You may find that implementing technical solutions is insufficient. You will also need a marketing and sales strategy (even though no actual sales will take place) to convince enterprises to adopt a different technology to what they already have. That a technology gets adopted due exclusively to its technical merits alone is something that rarely happens any more, even less so in businesses that are, by and large, notoriously conservative.

  • Is MP4 the right format we want to promote? Even if we are allowed to distribute MP4 files without paying royalities, we shouldn't. There are royality-free alternatives.

We checked and it turns out that x264/mp4 is licensed under GPLv2.

That's just a piece of software used for encoding video in the file format. For the licensing/patent status of the video format itself, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Licensing. As far as I can tell the patent itself expired in 2018 but I'm no legal expert.
