There's still two aspects missing in the integration:
- configure Provider to actually submit (see productIdentifier, feedbackServer 
and submissionInterval properties)
- probably add some data sources (in the current form you only get an 
indication on how many users you have, and untargeted surveys, nothing more)

The second point will need some more QML wrapper API. I'll look into adding a 
QML plugin to KUserFeedback directly for this.

INSTALL contains the deployment documentation, both for the full setup with 
authentication on an Apache server, and locally for unsecured testing using 
the built-in PHP server.

I've also got a playground server on my own infrastructure now that I can 
provide accounts for. And Jan has published his ongoing work on creating a 
Docker image for the server here:
