Ideas for niches to take over:

  • Kdenlive should become the go-to free video editor for hobbyists and semi-professionals
  • KMail should establish itself as a valid free alternative to Outlook (and simliar) for small businesses and schools

Promo has little say in the organisational aspects of Akademy (recording videos is a task undertaken by Akademy's organisers). I know from experience that video recording and production is hard and the organisers do the best with the means they have handy.

  • Showcase Halium

As mentioned on IRC, Halium project is one of project where we are collaborating with the other organizations BUT, Halium project is neither good showcase of the KDE technologies nor, is something to showcase. Halium project is kind of legally grey area (in terms of binary blobs and stuff) and is completely independent of KDE community.

I have both hats, Plasma Mobile developer and Project Halium co-founder. But as a KDE developer I don't entirely like idea of promoting halium. If halium team wants to showcase halium they can go to event on their own capacity.

I think uploading them to peertube sounds like a good idea. How would the Akademy Team do this when they are ready? I assume having them already there for the announcement would be good.

You have to find an instance of PeerTube to share content. The biggest benefit and biggest problem with peertube is the decentralized nature of it. In this case, there is an option for KDE. Linux Rocks Online provides a peertube instance at peertube.linuxrocks.online

The Akademy team would not do the uploading, since managing social media accounts and their contents are Promo's responsibility.

What I am trying to say is that here is where the real work gets done and a lot of people don't come here because... I don't know... It is intimidating? If it is only @skadinna and myself, things tend to get stuck as there are not enough hours in a day to get through all the stuff on the workboard. So one of the most important ways of contributing to Promo right now is coming to the workboard and helping get tasks unstuck. I don't know how you want to express that, but this would be a true way of measuring commitment to the group.

'You must take on and resolve to completion at least 1 promo task a year' seems a bit blunt, making a twitter post is trivial but running a stall somewhere is lots of work. I think just 'be actively contributing to promo tasks' would do.
