Re: kio-stash is in KDE Review




You use something called "releaseme" to create a tarball, upload it to ftp and ask Sysadmin to release it. Then you write a release announcement and distro packagers pick it up.

Sounds great then. My question is - where are KDE Extragear apps
actually distributed? Are they only available in repos, or are they
distributed with mainline builds of Plasma distros such as Neon and

Also, are there any other follow up formalities I have to do to 'ship'
this for good?
