I can look into the AppImage part, hopefully that shouldn't be too hard 
(famous last words). 

As far as Windows is concerned, the last time it was brought up on this list, 
I think the consensus was that it was not ready yet (please correct me if I am 
wrong). For what its worth, the master branch can be built with craft using 
msvc2019 and runs, but it does have some rough edges: e.g. I can reliably get 
it to freeze with a largish C++ project, building a CMake project insists (and 
fails) on using ninja even though cmake generates VS projects, because that is 
its default on win. I don't think I have enough energy and knowledge to fix 
this, and definitely not before December.

Also I can try to help with reviewing merge requests, but my knowledge of
the kdevelop codebase is not very thorough.
