Let's put a temporary brake on adding new projects for now and try and move this on to the phase in which we talk strategies we are going to use to convince the projects to join us.

I would like to gently point out that this is not very helpful and that we are never going to reach a consensus if every new comment contains a new proposal. This task has been blocked for weeks. The best time to submit a proposal would've been then, not at the exact moment when we are trying to unblock it.

paulb added a comment to T11835: Organizing KDE's presence at FOSDEM 2020.

Thinking of the Apps goal, are there any other apps we could demo that would draw a crowd? I am not sure this would be popular, but I have been quite impressed by the travelling assistant features Kontact has acquired recently, although I doubt that would make for a very enthralling demo. I am sure there are other applications (Kdenlive?) that would make for visually appealing demos.

Or... Just share the link somewhere obvious and public for now, like on the wiki. Currently, the folder is not very organised, but, with feedback, that can change. There are some things that are write only and should probably stay that way, like templates, or backups of materials, or master materials. Would that be a problem?

As discussed at the BoF on KDE Applications at Akademy there is the idea to replace KDE Applications with a de-branded Release Service and instead of announcing that having monthly 'this month from KDE' app announces. This could coincide with the Release Services releases in the months when they happen.

Expanding a bit on the fact that the line between important and interesting may be not absolute, I think that any of items on the "Important (but not very interesting)" list become interesting if they were associated to a bug which had a relevant number of votes/reactions.
