Requesting my project named "media-downloader" to become part of KDE

Hi, thanks for your interest in joining KDE with your project.  We have a
process called Incubator to help being in projects created outside KDE.  It's just a checklist to make sure the
project uses technologies we are familiar with and communication tools we
use such as Matrix and bugzilla.

Looking at your project it would benefit from using ki18n and there's some
obvious QA issues such as what running it when youtube-dl is not installed
(the app just freezes for me).

There's no legal issues I'm aware of for youtube-dl and certainly none for
an app which happens to run as an external command.  Background info at

Do give me a ping on Matrix (jriddell) if you want to get the process
