ltoscano added a comment to T10812: KDE Applications.

Yes, we have been trying hard, but did we succeed? Would someone just stop using Okular, because it is shipped with the Plasma bundle instead of the KDE Applications bundle?

ltoscano added a comment to T10812: KDE Applications.

If you are asking for my personal opinion, I propose to split current KDE Applications into parts:

  • Base/essential applications (Dolphin, Ark, KCharSelect, KCalc, Kate/KWrite, Konsole, Spectacle, Gwenview, Okular, thumbnailers, more?). Ship them together with Plasma[1]. I really love the Fibonacci release cycles of Plasma for bug fixes. Also, Plasma developers sometimes decide to do an LTS release, and the base applications would also benefit from LTS support. All of them should use the same 5.x (later 6.x) version number.

I was actually going to suggest this myself, so I'm glad you did. :) I agree 100% with this as well as your other ideas about splitting up apps into different releases.

  • about the version number in the release can be probably solved - we already have some magic to create the bugzilla versions.

Would you be interested in helping with this? We're a bit stuck in T10636. The idea is that we'd like the release process to automatically populate the AppData files' release tags.

ltoscano added a comment to T10755: Unifying Applications' release versions.

I disagree.

  • The version number is prominently displayed inside the application. We even changed Frameworks to make sure that the version number is well visible in the first tab, because the version has been hidden on the second tab of the About dialog for a while.
  • KDE Applications is an bundle of loosly-coupled application, good for logistical reasons (less release work on each developer), but as it happened applications can go in and out anytime. Going out may make the original version useless and have more impact on packagers (epoch).
  • the internal version can be still found
  • there shouldn't be a consistent version inside KInfoCenter and I would oppose it even if all applications in KDE Applications had the same version number. The applications part of KDE Applications don't belong there, otherwise why shouldn't we list everything released by us with its own release cycle?
  • there is no extra burden for the developers who freely choose to keep their version number
  • about the version number in the release can be probably solved - we already have some magic to create the bugzilla versions.

ltoscano added a comment to T10636: Announcement text for the Applications 19.04 release.

Didn't we discuss it and decided that it's not a good idea? Especially the dates. Please hold on this.

The prior discussion concerned whether or not to add release notes into the AppData and how, which exposed complexities with translation and the schedule that we have yet to resolve. This current proposal is simply to programmatically add the current version number into the AppData file, which requires no translation and won't present any of the problems we ran into before.

ltoscano added a comment to T10034: Attract existing FLOSS software projects to KDE and incorporate their members into our community.

Hi all! Sorry I'm a little late to the (excellent and exciting) discussion here. I'd like to add one potential project as well, that would really fit a need within KDE Applications: Kraft. As it stands today we have the excellent Scrooge and KMyMoney for finances - and even can be used for small biz accounting. To also have an easy to use invoicing program would be extremely helpful - and also unique in the FOSS world AFAIK. Basic business software is sorely lacking in the FOSS world, it would appear.

It would also be a small victory, since there were attempts in the past to make this a "official" KDE Application, but the effort was cut short due to an unfortunate, and brief, discussion. See That Was Fast: As Of Today Kraft Is Out Of KDE for some context.
