Other than that, the source code is Free Software under GPL/LGPL, so anyone is free to do with it what they want as long as they comply with the license ;)

Thanks for asking.
I am not aware of anyone who would support Okteta on Windows. I would not, as I joined KDE once to work on and support FLOSS , not to spend free time and add value to proprietary systems, especially those violating privacy principles these days additionally.
I am more and more wondering whether I still fit here.

ngraham added a comment to T9578: Publish Okular in the Microsoft Store.

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.

When creating a Breeze theme version of an existing app’s icon, is critically important that the icon’s existing brand and visual style be preserved.

Anyway this is offtopic, this task is about bringing Okular to Windows.

Elementary OS or Deepin devs have applications with icons in unify style. Why KDE can't do the unify style of icons everywhere?

No problem.
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.

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.

Perhaps Hannah can give feedback.

I have an account for the store now, too, and can help with the submission.

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?

cullmann added a comment to T9578: Publish Okular in the Microsoft Store.

Ok.
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.

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

  • Kile
  • Okular
  • Kdenlive
  • KDevelop
  • GPGME
  • KStars

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.
