well, in my opinion we managed quite the opposite, to be honest.
Not only did we publish an article that was wrong and looked a bit
unprofessional, personally I also think having at least some more testing
before going public by a group would have been helpful.
First of all, we did have performance issues when it got live. First due to a
bug that is, as far as I am aware, now fixed. Now due to the bridge being the
shared matrix bridge, which is under quite a load, hence having a couple of
seconds of delay between sending messages and seeing them / message order
mixup, which is to be solved (likely by switching over to a dedicated bridge)
That, and the few bugs reported (and some of them fixed) in the matrix kde
support channel right after release are all things I think could have been
ironed out before release if tested.
In addition to that, the internal-only approach seems to have lead to a rather
biased / sided article which, according to Lazlo, still comes across as biased
/ sided. This is of course debateable, but I can see where he is coming from.
So I think some "not getting it right" moaning is warranted, and the "bring
back KDE 3" people will always be there, and everything looks a nail if all
you have is a hammer, so no matter what we do and how we do it: it can be used
as an argument.
That all in mind is why I think the approach was maybe not the best one and
should be reconsidered for future events and articles.
Thanks and kind regards,
