Git LFS is certainly an option for larger files as Gitlab provides us with support for that.

We could try to remove all the images from the git history and add then again optimized in one commit at the end. It will be less radical than removing the complete history. Another solution would be to play with Git lfs (https://git-lfs.github.com) and have the images/videos/pdfs stored in another server.
Given the folder on disk is 1.3GB, and in the past people were known to perform image size optimisation passes of Subversion, it ending up at 3GB in size isn't a huge surprise.
I'm not sure what options we have for eliminating those image size optimisations from the history.

The current problem, I'm facing is that the repository is still 3Gb big :( and all my attempts to reduce it only improve the size from a few megabytes.
Process wise, what is the status of this migration?

Much better. Would it be worth the effort to add mention to the home page of the latest released version? If not on the Home page, at least on the Download page? I know I sometimes do go to an application's page just to confirm I'm actually on the latest released version. Right now, other than the News page, I don't see it anywhere within two or three clicks of the Home page.
I just moved the news to /news and increased the list of news per page to 10
Unfortunately, the number of items per page is fix for all pages in jekyll. Since the announcements on the first page are somewhat indistinguishable from the rest, how about having a News section between KMyMoney and Support in the top header. Creating a news subdir allows us to have another index.html (the pagination only works on index.html) but I have not tested that at all, just ideas

Yes, especially after the first page. Even the first page is larger than most screens, so putting 5 or even 10 items per page after the first seems OK. (It seems the announcements are clipped to at most a few lines, so they will never be very long.)
I just pushed a fix :) Maybe we could also increase the number of announcements displayed per page?
Thanks for all the work on this, but there are 12 pages, and the only thing that changes is Announcements, and even that took me a while to notice, since that section is not set off from the rest in any way. Also, the "Major Platform" icons are missing on all except the first page. The second is likely to be a bug somewhere. The first is more a style issue - so where is the best place to discuss how it "should" work, and what options there are.
I'm working on an updated website with the new theme here: https://invent.kde.org/carlschwan/ev-kde-org
kmymoney.org now use the new design and is deployed 🎉 Many thanks to all the peoples who helped with the update.

The tooling improved a bit for https://kde.org/announcements/releases. The next step would be to create a python package with the script so that we don't need to duplicate the code for each repo.
Any progress here? Where can I find the repo for https://relate.kde.org/?
there is now a docker-compose setup for kde.org
We will need to migrate the website to drupal 8 in 2021 when Drupal 7 is end of life (or before when the Drupal 7 plugins we depend aren't supported anymore).
