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.

Hey @fbampaloukas: I think the title of your goal could give a stronger impression if you stated explicitly what you want it to achieve. May I suggest Get KDE Working properly on Wayland Once and for All?

paulb added a comment to T11117: KDE is All About the Apps.

Hey @jriddell: As a goal, you may want to get an imperative verb into the title, as in "This is what we should do". I would like to suggest: Make KDE all about the Apps

paulb added a comment to T11146: Provide Software Solutions for Consumer Devices.

@bshah : Can I recommend you changge the title to "Provide Software Solutions for Consumer Devices"? The "KDE" bit is obvious so you don't need it and the changes amend some minor grammar slips.

  • 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.

Where is the mention of MP4? We'll look for an alternative

There are two inline videos, which are in MP4 format.

I've done a first pass on https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_19.08_new_features and sent around emails to people asking them to add more. In the worst-case scenario that what's currently in there is all we get, I think there are still enough juicy goodies for a beefy release announcement (can something be both juicy and beefy)?

The Plasma page needs more careful planning than this. You want to say enough to get your message across, but not so much as to overwhelm. You want to include videos, slideshows, GIFs and 3D models. You also seem to be inclined towards gradient and textured backgrounds. Altogether it is too much.
