KMPlayer releases

I just triaged a bug about KMPlayer's AppStream ID not working properly:
<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=412542" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=412542">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=412542</a>

That the AppStream ID in current git master differs from the version in
distro repos, which is a problem because KMPlayer hasn't had a release
in 3 years.

Applications 19.08 release notes

Howdy folks,

The deadline for KDE Applications 19.08 is fast approaching and we need
release notes! I've created
<a href="https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_19.08_new_features" title="https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_19.08_new_features">https://notes.kde.org/p/applications_19.08_new_features</a> and done a first
pass on populating it with notes, but more are needed.

If your awesome features and bugfixes will land in the Applications
19.08 release, please add it to that document so it can be included in
the release announcement -- ideally before July 29th (sorry for the
short notice on this).

2019 Usability & Productivity sprint

Howdy folks,
I'd like to bring people's attention to the 2019 Usability & Productivity sprint in Valencia, Spain on June 19th - June 26th: <a href="https://community.kde.org/Sprints/Usability_%26_Productivity/2019" title="https://community.kde.org/Sprints/Usability_%26_Productivity/2019">https://community.kde.org/Sprints/Usability_%26_Productivity/2019</a>. We've got a fun and ambitious agenda planned (<a href="https://notes.kde.org/p/usability-productivity-sprint-2019" title="https://notes.kde.org/p/usability-productivity-sprint-2019">https://notes.kde.org/p/usability-productivity-sprint-2019</a>), and there's still room for up to 6 more people at our venue. On that subject, it's being held at the same place and time as the Plasma sprint so participating in both is also a possibility.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you're interested in attending!

ffmpegthumbnailer

Howdy folks,
We have <a href="https://cgit.kde.org/ffmpegthumbs.git" title="https://cgit.kde.org/ffmpegthumbs.git">https://cgit.kde.org/ffmpegthumbs.git</a>, which is not very actively developed.

There is also this upstream project <a href="https://github.com/dirkvdb/ffmpegthumbnailer" title="https://github.com/dirkvdb/ffmpegthumbnailer">https://github.com/dirkvdb/ffmpegthumbnailer</a> which appears to be more actively developed.

It seems kind of wasteful to have two projects that do exactly the same thing, each with few resources and low levels of interest. What do folks think about approaching the maintainer of the project on GitHub and asking if they want to merge with ours? Or should we abandon ours and tell distros to package his instead?

notes.kde.org having auth trouble

Hello Sysadmin,
People are having trouble authenticating to any of the documents on
notes.kde.org. It's rejecting everyone's credentials for all documents
at the moment.

Would someone mind taking a look?

back up?

bugs.kde.org: kio vs frameworks-kio vs kfile etc.

Howdy folks,

Right now we have a lot of KIO bugs scattered around in various places:
- kio
- frameworks-kio
- kfile

Should we mark kio and kfile as not accepting new bugs, add some more components to frameworks-kio, consolidate everything there, and then eventually remove kio and kfile?
