KDE Frameworks soon 5 years old

Hi everyone,

the first release of KDE Frameworks was version 5.0, released on 7th of
July, 2014 [0], [1]. Since then, the KDE Frameworks libraries were released
every month as scheduled on time [2], growing from initially ~60 libraries
to over 70 well maintained libraries.

Soon, KDE Frameworks will turn 5 years old with its 5.60th release, likely
happening in July 2019 (will be the 61th release).

Is there anyone who wants to prepare a .dot story and maybe even get in
contact with the Qt marketing to celebrate this a bit?

What comes to my mind:
- KDE Frameworks is a set of well-maintained crossplatform C++ libraries
that extend Qt
- KDE Frameworks libraries can often be used standalone without any (or
only a few) dependencies, such as KArchive or KSyntaxHighlighting
- KDE Frameworks are well-tested [3] and documented [4]
- Transparent licensing
- KSyntaxHighlighting is used in Qt Creator [5]

What I wrote here is obviously not yet a nice dot story :-)
Any takers?

Best regards
Dominik
