I think that's a good idea, pulling in projects that would benefit from the help of the KDE community. I came across one as well: https://github.com/rochus-keller/CrossLine. No idea if the developer want's assistance but the project is based on Qt4. Maybe he would be interested in porting to Qt5.

I'm going to tentatively add Natron to the list. According to this article, the two remaining developers have a lot of trouble in advancing the project. The program uses C++ and Qt, albeit older version of both, but they want to push conversion to more modern versions, which would mean converting to Qt5. To me it looks like a prime candidate for being "rescued".

Regarding Digikam: I am not sure where on their website (https://digikam.org) to put a "Made by KDE"... Maybe to the left of the "Download" button? I think it'd also be great if we could somehow have a presence in the application, as Digikam is one of the projects that is often used standalone, without any other KDE software (similar to Krita). According to the git history, @cgilles is probably the most active Digikam developer, so we should discuss this with him.

I am hitting a bit of brick wall. Arsys only lets me transfer it to another Arsys client, which you, of course, are not. And you can't become a client unless you buy something off them. The cheapest thing I have found is a domain with the .com.es TLD (€ 1.95). I thought I could buy... I don't know, kde.com.es, using domain@kde.org and then I would be able to transfer kdeedu.org to you. What do you think? (Apologies for such a mad goose chase).
