No video of the event yet, sorry!

One of the most important reasons for a piece of software to be part of KDE is to be part of the infrastructure that KDE offers to our project: translations, ux and graphics design, quality assurance, packaging, etc.

KDE software is available on most traditional Linux distributions but often also on OS X, Windows or Android. To that we've recently included Snap, AppImage and Flatpak.

We'll go through what's the specificities about these new formats, which are the showstoppers and where we've seen it shine so far. We'll also discuss where is the balance between automation and control from the maintainers.
