Probably not the proper list to discuss that, but introducing it here
as many people read it (and if you contribute to an application in
KDE, please, don't skip ;)
One thing that would be really important to do, is deciding what
content currently in opendesktop should be transfered as it is, it can
be done at the meeting, but would be nice to have a rough idea already

I went over categories in kde-files.org, that is a bit overlooked site
of the opendesktop ones, but it's actually quite important, as is the
one that usually has stuff from which applications will download extra
data (such as KStars extra graphics or plasma comic applet providers
for instance)

there is a lot of stuff there that is obviously outdated/not relevant
anymore, but also some that would be important. where would be the
right place to discuss that?
I'm introducing the issue quickly here anyways (then let's move where
more suited):

what would be needed are the maintainers of the applications that
content categories belong to, to vet the categories and roughly the
content as well (to tell which categories need, which don't, and
things like "for this category i only want items that have been
updated in the past 2 years, the others discarded")

And very important, if the maintainers won't answer or the application
appears to not really be maintained, the categories and their whole
content would have to be dropped

a preliminar list of stuff that has items newer than 2014:

krita and subcategories, excluding 1.x
<- are all subcategories still valid?
ODF templates http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=630x631x632x633x634

krusader http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=660x661x662x663
tellico http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=675x676 <--
external app/maintained?
kate highlighting http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=680
KDEnlive effects http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=683
Plasma comics http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=685 <-

KWordQuiz http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=694
Cantor and subcategories
KMail headers http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=668x700x701x702x703

Marble http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=646 <- not used at
all? i find that strange
Pairs: http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=647
KDE app templates http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=635 <--
i would have them maintained only in git, it's already hard enough to
keep such examples relevant as it is
KDevelop file templates http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=637
plasma public transport applet
http://kde-files.org/index.php?xcontentmode=638 <-- unported, so
content not relevant at the moment but such a shame
