A meta-project which contains all tasks and repositories related to packaging and releasing KDE software in desktop versions of Windows.
I already tested the version without icons.
Worked as expected
I started to fill-out the Submission 1 form.
Any help welcome.
After all is filled out, we can pick some build to use.
Here is a first version:
for future releases:
This is the choice of the maintainer, KDE isn't an dictature VDG can't change the brand of an application, without the approval of the maintainer. In the current state the okular breeze icon don't respect the hig.
I think you should apply for some account to our window store stuff, too.
Just create a sysadmin ticket for that.
I think it would make sense that you can handle the submission later on as you seem to care to get this done.
Hannah and me can help out with that then later, if stuff is unclear.
I added a merge request for that
We can just add appx generation to the https://binary-factory.kde.org/job/Elisa_Release_win64/ job.
Then you can try the sideload appx locally.

Yes i would prefer if we use the okular icon that is in the okular repository that was decided by the okular developers to be the okular icon.
Which icon do you want to use Albert? I have no preferences, it's your thing to decide I think.
There is icon bundled in okular.git, or?
I won't touch that icon at the moment.
Tyson is working on some improved variant, I will update all places once that is there.
Please, use Breeze icon of Okular.
Can you update Kate icon to actual (Breeze style) in Microsoft Store?
The basic idea would be, that I get one appx in initial shape and test it here on my Win10 VM.
We then later need to see how we handle the re-submission after each new applications release.
To "un-publish" it is one click in the store admin site.
If it works, and there's a kind of plan for future updates (or at least remove it if no updates) i don't have any problem.
Albert, I would try to take care to get some usable release build for Okular 19.08.x for the store.
Would that be OK with you?
We have now some release build job at least ;=)

I see we have only https://binary-factory.kde.org/job/Okular_Nightly_win64/ and not for release.
What is needed to set that up?
I think we need to get craft to build an appx package for

Just been looking through the statistics we get from Microsoft and it appears that the following applications are quite popular on Windows:

I need to praise once more Hannah's work :=)
I think we need to document somewhere better how to get access to the account for publishing stuff and the process.
I hope the Kate submission get's approved in the next days, then we can take a look how well it is perceived, given it has a theoretically much larger user group as target than e.g. KStars.
Given we have this in the store https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/p/kstars/9pprz2qhlxtg?activetab=pivot:overviewtab I close this ticket.
For more stuff, we can open new tasks.
Thanks to all people that helped out here!
We did it, hurray .)

We briefly talked about Dolphin on Windows at the Dolphin BoF today at Akademy. We agreed that Dolphin on Windows should get some more love, since there are users that are using it (from the binary factory). Getting it released "officially" is something we should be looking into.
Lydia told me she has some draft from Ben for that.

If I can help, I have some time for this (and Windows machines at work for testing).
And I would be interested to be able to provide updated version to the store on my own if feasible.
Hi I will look into it again.
If I can't find the time... I definitely plan to get it done during akademy.
Hi, is there a way to get this going again?
Can I do that on my own? I have a Microsoft account "firstname.lastname@example.org", can that one be authorized to add the application to the store under "KDE e.V."?
