Hi Valorie!
Thanks for looking into this.

Since we're talking about KDE Applications, I suggest considering as
alive, by default, all of the applications released there:
http://download.kde.org/unstable/applications/15.11.90/src/

Also there's some tasks that could be done in bulk, like updating the
icons to the Breeze style, which is the one we default to now:
https://github.com/NitruxSA/breeze-icon-theme/tree/master/Breeze/apps/48

Likewise, taking new screenshots for any of the applications but using
Breeze's look and feel would also be helpful.

Hope this helps,
Aleix
