A non-coder's perspective: please provide a config file rather than patching. Users can merely remove the config file if they don't like the change.

Thanks for the clarification, michaeltunnel. Totally onboard with this small change!

I have no clue (and never had) which is kicker and which is kickoff! So +1 for me for showing the name somewhere -- and also the description. The popups in the icon-only panel (pinned) do show this now.
F8 does seem needlessly obscure. However, alt+H now give "Help" which does seem logical.

I think you are doing the job. Rick created the task, so I guess he should chime in when he can.

The side-by-side is quite dramatic.
I will add comments to your email. I wanted to check out all the links before doing so.
I have those setting already, and I think I set them after reading someone crab about the defaults. I don't know that these are the best settings for the most people, so I guess am a very lazy +1 on this.
Now that I have compositing turned back on, I see the glide effect. I had missed that; I think we used to have it on by default.
This is a truly cool widget, and I did miss the ability to do that easily when leaving my computer. So +1 for this suggestion as well.
Aha, now I see the difference. And while I sort of like it is no professional, as you say.
They do come back indeed. I wonder if I turned that off sometime by mistake.
I have nvidia which I imagine supports it, but I rarely meddle with settings. How would I know if compositing were on or off? I don't think I see shadows.
Turning that effect on and off for me shows no difference when resizing or moving windows, so I have no opinion. On the other hand, turning off effects seems sane unless there is wide-spread support for having them.
Clicked send too quickly. I would support this if our international users were behind it. If not, I'd rather stick with Noto.
As far as I know, it does not. Look at the choices you are offered if you want Noto, in contrast to what you are offered if you choose Ubuntu.
This is *great* looking. I would support this, although the previous wallpaper I thought was pretty bad. This one is just awesome though.
Thu, Feb 1
I followed the discussion in KDE which led to the adoption of Noto, and it was based mostly on their coverage of the world, in particular Asian font families, and right-to-left fonts often used in west Asia and some places in Africa. This really is a huge advantage around the world.

VikingRedWolf, really good to see you joining in here!

Wow, I love this second iteration, Andy! Thanks so much for your work. <3
Sun, Jan 28
Hey Andy, thanks for the quick work! Of course the k has to be in there, and I agree on the eye. Maybe a bit more open and friendly. The beak is tough enough to fight off malware. :-)

Oh gosh another competition. Please no. On the other hand, it would be cool if people felt so inclined that they could contribute wallpapers with the proper licensing. That could perhaps be done through store.kde.org with a tag of Kubuntu?
Jan 11 2018
For now I added some information at https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved#Ways_to_contribute
Dec 27 2017
We do blacklist it: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/seeds/kubuntu.bionic/desktop
Package now called network-manager-config-connectivity-ubuntu

Well, it would be nice to see snaps offered for those who want them. Are the KDE store offerings available through Discover?

Reasoned criticism is necessary -- and this fellow can help us make the LTS great.
Budgie seems interesting -- anybody have some names of folks we should start chatting with?
Nov 7 2017
Hi folks, I was invited to add input here, so I thought it over. This year was a very heavy travel year for me, and I can't face international travel so soon, so I'll bow out. Have a great time though!

+1 from me, although I always install flash and then block by default. :-)

One thing we've discussed a few times in the past is putting some text somewhere in the applications or other menu places. Putting info into installer slides is useful perhaps, for those who see them, but once the install is done, the information is gone. I don't know where such text could live, however.

Evidently there is a calendar function here -- would be cool to integrate that for stuff like this!
Clive, what an excellent idea. Sorry I didn't see this for 3 months! But would be an excellent addition for our LTS.

I'll try again to get BBB working.
Thanks, Rik! That vision was a great start, and I think we've come a long way since then. And I think this is the perfect time to take stock and lay new plans.
Can we get 1. a post to the Council ML about this with a CC to the developers ml, and 2. a link to Ovi's Kubuntu Vision?

I like all but the wallpaper -- unless we have it set to change when there is new wallpaper, in which case if the majority wants it, I'm fine with it.

If it does what ngraham says it does, and it is small, of course we should include it.

Thanks for adding me to all these tasks, skadinna!

Oh, and removing KDE-Telepathy should be done if we're not giving people a working client now. I've not been able to get it to work in Zesty. I plan on upgrading to the alpha once it is released.
Sorry to have missed this discussion. Have we missed the chance to do these changes already? At least Dragonplayer -> VLC seems a no-brainer.

Alpha 1 -- opt in, done (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArtfulAardvark/Alpha1)

I've upgraded my travel laptop tonight, and will be using/testing it tomorrow afternoon. I'll report back any problems here.
May 31 2017
upgrade went well; everything seems to work. Yakuake does seem to scroll and unscroll in a less smooth way, but it still works.
May 17 2017
Thanks for the clarification, Rik!
Upgraded my travel laptop running 16.04 LTS then added backports-landing, and updated and full-upgrade. Upon restart, no problems. Played a game of Klondike, used Chromium, everything seems to work well.

After reading this entire thread, I'm revising my thoughts. First, patches are evil. So our thoughts and code should go upstream to KDE PIM.
Apr 12 2017
I vote for a separate PPA just for testing PIM. If it passes testing, we can put it in backports PPA.

Looks good to me!

I never use the Toolbox button either, however I would like us to stay as "vanilla Plasma" as possible, as long as the defaults are good for our users. So I vote to keep the icon as it is.

put together https://phabricator.kde.org/w/kubuntu/release-management/ -- when Simon or Walter have time, they can make it better

Found https://community.kde.org/Kubuntu/Links and put most of them into https://phabricator.kde.org/w/kubuntu/developer-links/ -- some might need moving. I believe sitter built this page. :-)
Changed my mind. Since there is no easy way to do strikeout, I'm just removing bits we've got here, as I find them, until the page is blank -- at which point it can point to https://phabricator.kde.org/w/kubuntu/
Jan 31 2017
This page needs to go away too: https://community.kde.org/Kubuntu/Packaging . I created this page from our Notes originally. I will try to add cross-outs to it so we can begin to deprecate it. What a mess.
