+1 for the placeholder version; that looks nicer IMO.

The UI for the latest implementation is very good. I have only one suggestion. When no valid USB disks are mounted, instead of displaying a blank combobox with no entries, instead hide the combobox and show a centered label that says, "Please plug in a USB disk"

leinir added a comment to T10973: Add command line apps to kde.org/applications.

It seems to me that the question here is perhaps less about command line tools and more "does this executable perform a useful function, if launched without any pre-launch input". For command line tools, that question would become "does this tool require any parameters to perform any useful function"... As a specific example, KDialog does require that, and so it seems like we'd want to not be showing that in Discover.

Added. It's a question for Discover if it wants to display command line apps or not.

The issues with the video is now solved: we use webm and in case the browser doesn't support webm we create a Peertube iframe with the video.

  • Is MP4 the right format we want to promote? Even if we are allowed to distribute MP4 files without paying royalities, we shouldn't. There are royality-free alternatives.

We checked and it turns out that x264/mp4 is licensed under GPLv2.

That's just a piece of software used for encoding video in the file format. For the licensing/patent status of the video format itself, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Licensing. As far as I can tell the patent itself expired in 2018 but I'm no legal expert.

We checked and it turns out that x264/mp4 is licensed under GPLv2. As WebM and OGV do not work on all browsers (for example, Safari) we were wondering if you would be okay if we went back to MP4, as it poses no legal risk.

PNG is probably fine for images FWIW. :) No objection to converting them though.

I replaced all mp4 and png files with webm and webp.

Where is the mention of MP4? We'll look for an alternative

There are two inline videos, which are in MP4 format.

Unless I see a confirmation from our legal team, I will remove MP4 files from the www server tomorrow.

I will convert the video to webm and add a mp4 as fallback for the ios users.
For the caption, i wanted to share the same content for the alt and the caption. The alt text should be more descriptive and is intended for screen reader so I think adding Screenshot of in the alt text is useful .

Yep, and they should be .webm instead.

  • The caption's leading "Screenshot of " could be ommitted, and some genitive-S might need to be added ("Gwenview's new 'Share' menu" etc.), but please ask some native speaker.
  • Please add links from application names to applications.kde.org (see previous announcements).
  • The KMail grammar screenshot looks confusing, because there is no UI visible, just the text, which mixes visually with the main text.
