KDE incubator candidate request for marK tool

Hello,

I am planning to release a new application for KDE, which is a tool to help
people on building datasets for machine learning training processes. It
will act as a general-purpose tool for annotation and allow users to
annotate different types of data (i.e. images, audio, video, text). For
now, it is only allowing users to build image datasets. A further
description of this tool can be seen at:

Today, the team is composed by me and Icaro Jerry. The project is being
hosted at Github and it didn't had any patches for some months, but we are
starting to make it active again and planning to make our first release on
this month. According to the Incubator process list, we can't host it on
Github, so we want to know if it is possible to host it as a KDE repository.

Sandro Andrade will be helping us as a sponsor.

Best,
Caio

Caio,

Thanks for reaching out. With machine learning and artificial
intelligence becoming all the rage, having a Free and KDE-based tool for
generating training data would fill an important use case

It sounds like you've already found the Incubator page at
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Incubator" title="https://community.kde.org/Incubator">https://community.kde.org/Incubator</a>, so the next thing I'd recommend if
you want to import the repository is to work with Sandro to create the
your KDE development accounts if you haven't already done so.

From there, you and/or your sponsor can put in a request to our system
administrators to create a repository. See
<a href="http://sysadmin.kde.org/tickets/" title="http://sysadmin.kde.org/tickets/">http://sysadmin.kde.org/tickets/</a> to do so.
