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.
The text with some minor edits and reorganized sections is here (it's an ODT file):

I was working on it on-and-off with some major breaks in between, so it's unfortunately not done yet. I'll try to complete it this week so we have a small window for reviews before sending it out.

Hi David! Nice to meet you. I'm very glad to hear you're interested in improving KDE's documentation.

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.

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.

There is already a task that covers suggestions like this one: https://phabricator.kde.org/T10034

Lots of great ideas here! I would just warn you about two things:
Thank you for the update, Neofytos. I'm wondering if there's anything we can do in the meantime, while we wait. Otherwise it might be all rushed if we get very close to the official announcement date without anything prepared in advance.

Hi everyone, I'm bumping this in priority and moving it to active tasks - if we really wanna do this. Since there hasn't been much activity on the ticket, I'm guessing there are no volunteers for writing the draft of the Dot story? :)
I'm not a reviewer, but you have a few minor issues:

Hey everyone, thank you for the feedback. I've been away traveling so I haven't had a chance to properly sit down and rework the proposal. I will do that this week.

Alternatively, maybe add a section under the search bar that lists all categories? Every category name can be a link leading to that particular category on the page.
@cahfofpai do you think anything else needs to be done to consider this task completed? I think you succeeded in the main mission, which was to get the account up and running :)
While doing work for the branding assessment task T5844, I compiled a list of wiki pages that need to be archived or updated with new brand messaging and visuals.
The sprint report has been published on the Dot and promoted on social media: https://dot.kde.org/2019/06/05/kde-privacy-sprint-2019-edition

Finally, a big update on this: we have a new version of the press kit available for download on the official KDE website - https://kde.org/contact/

I don't know if this advice makes sense; maybe it can be combined with what Nate wrote:

Hi @ognarb, just wanted to say that I like this initiative a lot, and if needed, I would love to help create/edit/update the tutorials.

General outline of topics we'd like to cover during the sprint:

Yes, Málaga would also be fine for me, just some other time. Any place is actually fine; my problem is the timing 😅

Plasma Mobile is already using the tagline "Plasma in your pocket" which suits the project really well, so I wouldn't go with "Pocket Plasma" because it could easily get confusing.
I'll update here just so we can keep track of who's got what (since I'm still having trouble editing docs directly on Share).

My suggestion is to look into whether this can be co-organized with the Onboarding sprint in Athens, which is taking place in May. (https://phabricator.kde.org/T8623)

There are at least 2 tasks for this already, in other workboards:

I can't send anything until late in the evening, I don't have the file on this computer. You just keep working on your copy and I'll add my changes later - or into the online document, if it decides to work properly.
I've made some changes to my local copy of the original outline. We'll have to synchronize at some point.
