KDE is All About the Apps
KDE has over 200 applications and countless addons, plugins and Plasmoids. We offer useful services to them as projects such as Git hosting, teams of translators, designers and artists, some release management if they are part of KDE Applications. But much of the support we offer has fallen short, until recently there wasn't even an up to date website listing them all. There is no method of taking decisions on how these support services are provided and proposed changes often stall such as when the kde.org/applications did for a year.
With new packaging formats we will now be able to release apps directly to users on Linux, our main target platform. This means we need to review our processes and up our game in many areas because no more will we be able to rely on 3rd parties to finish off our software and make it useful and attractive to users, we need to do that ourselves.
KDE has many fabulous apps, let's take them out to the world!
