Yes,

but that will need people that help with this.

At the moment, Hannah, me, and a few others do that, but there is no 
real workforce
to get more stuff uploaded at the moment.

(I even didn't update e.g. filelight since last year or so, just Kate 
and Okular)

For Kate and Okular I am happy with the current state, there are some 
open bug reports,
but as far as I can see nothing really grave like "crashs the whole 
time" or "eats all my data".

Still, it would be nice to reach out to more developers on Windows, not 
sure how that is done best,
my blog posts did seem to have a very low impact.

Btw., the internal store statistics show Kate will soon peek over the 
50k acquisitions border, Okular is a bit over 40k.

Greetings
Christoph
