Symmy in kde-review

Hi,
symmy has been moved to kde-review for the usual review process.

It's a tiny frontend for the symmetric encryption functionality of GPG. It
doesn't handle signing or public/private keys, as we already have kgpg or
kleopatra for that.

Symmy can be useful if you have to send some sensitive file to someone, of
if you want to store it on some proprietary cloud service.

It comes with a CLI application and plugins for GUI integration with
Dolphin/Plasma.

I'd like to move it to either extragear-utils or kde-utils, if everything
looks good.

Thanks,
Elvis

Krazy source code

Hi,
where do I find the krazy source code? It doesn't seem to be listed under
<a href="https://cgit.kde.org/" title="https://cgit.kde.org/">https://cgit.kde.org/</a>

Google tells me there is <a href="https://github.com/Krazy-collection/krazy" title="https://github.com/Krazy-collection/krazy">https://github.com/Krazy-collection/krazy</a> but I'm
not sure if that is a mirror or a fork.

Cheers,

RFC: Applications 17.12 as LTS release

Hi all,
I'm looking for feedback about the proposal of making KDE Applications
17.12 an LTS release. If there are enough developers interested, we can
make this happen (see this thread [1] on release-team for some context).

Motivations for making 17.12 an LTS release:

* 17.12 due in December, next Plasma LTS due in January.
* New openSUSE and Ubuntu LTS releases due next year.
* 17.12 won't have kdelibs4 applications, so it would be a 'stable' target.

On the other hand, Albert made good points against [2][3], since an LTS
branch means more work for developers.

Wayland porting notes for applications

Hi,
I started a wiki page [1] with some notes about porting applications on
Wayland. Mostly QtWidgets-related for now.

Feel free to improve it, if you think there is something that every
developer should know and that's not in that page yet.
