Topic suggestion: Improving the release announcement process and our relationship with developers

Great suggestions, @derkits!! Thanks so much. I think Paul is also aiming to make the whole thing shorter, so the next version of the draft should reflect that.

Here's also the first layout idea I put together. This one's a bit simplistic, so if we're going to do a new one, it should probably be more exciting and varied.

skadinna added a comment to T11096: First-class user & developer documentation centralized on a portal.

These past few days I've been looking into transforming and improving this proposal based on the feedback I received during last week's office hours. I have also tried to realistically assess my upcoming obligations for the next 6 months or so. Unfortunately, I don't think I would be able to fully commit to leading this goal if it were selected. :( It would be unfair to drag everyone down and waste people's time by promising and planning something, and then failing to deliver meaningful work.

skadinna added a comment to T11243: Update kde.org/plasma-desktop.

Sure they do. But their text size to image size ratio is much more balanced than in your example, their text is spaced better, and their page width seems larger than in your example. If you want to do it this way, then the images from your example should be a lot smaller. Ideally it would be 50:50; it looks like the elementary example is pretty close to that.

Definitely put the text under images - not just on mobile, but on the desktop version as well. It doesn't look good at all when it's offset like that.

maybe we could merge this task with T11117 (KDE is All About the Apps).

I don't think those two tasks have a large overlap, especially not the developer documentation part of this. It may make more sense to just merge the user documentation part of the task.

I'm a bit torn. For all the documentation I've updated that that's on a wiki, I seriously doubt I would have made the change if I'd needed to submit a patch, deal with bikeshedding, request commit access, etc. The barrier to entry for a wiki is just so low that it's a real advantage IMO.

On one hand it is good that the entry barrier for doing wiki work is low, especially given how few people are willing to put work there compared to the code work, but on the other hand the potential loss in quality is a concern.
