Hello energy-efficient FOSS enthusiasts!

The 2nd Wednesday of the month is quickly approaching and this is a gentle 
reminder of our next KDE Eco community meetup.

*When*: Wednesday 10 November, 19:00 CET (UTC+1) (ics event attached)


*Topic*: Standard Usage Scenarios -- with a presentation by Franziska Mai from 
Umwelt Campus Birkenfeld plus discussion with the community (see details 

*Goal*: To begin planning standard usage scenarios for first measure-athon of 
Kate, GCompris, and other free software at the Q1 2022 Sprint (likely 
February) at KDAB Berlin's community lab


At the last meetup we learned about various tools (Actiona, xdotool, etc.) for 
emulating user behavior. The topic of this meetup will be defining and 
emulating standard usage scenarios specifically.

A standard usage scenario reflects the typical functions of an application, 
with the frequency of those functions taken into account. Standard usage 
scenarios are central to measuring the energy consumption of a piece of 

Franziska Mai from the Umwelt Campus Birkenfeld has kindly agreed to present 
on her experience implementing standard usage scenarios for her work on the 
energy consumption of various operating systems.

Following the presentation we will brainstorm the typical functions that will 
define a standard usage scenario for Kate, GCompris, and other software of 
interest to the FOSS community. The goal is to begin planning for a measure-
athon at the Q1 2022 Sprint at KDAB Berlin. This energy consumption data will 
be essential for identifying ways to make KDE/free software more energy 
efficient and for recognizing FOSS as environmentally friendly software with 
Blauer Engel eco-certification :)

FYI: I will send an email to the energy efficiency mailing list and Matrix room 
early next week regarding the KDAB lab set-up Sprint in December, which will 
likely take place on one-day on Saturday 11 December. For maximum safety, it 
will be a 2G + test event. All are invited to join, so pencil it in in your 
calendars if you are interested!

I am very excited we will make the KDAB Berlin community measurement lab and 
the first of hopefully many free software measure-athons a reality in the very 
near future!
