30min: Getting the software on our users' hands

From release to the user


KDE has been distributing software for longtime now, this doesn't mean it every process has been ideal. New technologies and practices appear every day and also new requirements: we want to target different kinds of operating systems like Android and OS X as well as to reach the users in both traditional GNU/Linux distributions and fancier systems like Flatpak.
This presentation will look into how it has been done so far and its reasons, and what should we iterate this process to better serve our users.

The contents of this talk is subject to the outcome of the Randa Meeting later this year.

I've talked about the Flatpak (was xdg-app) parts before here:

It's especially important to tackle the issue because it's probably desirable to be able to offer software to the users when the distro can't help, but also keep distributions in mind, because they're the ones distributing most Linux software so far.
