Thanks for driving this Aleix!

The weekend of the 24th works for me, I could likely only extend this towards 
Monday though.

In terms of possible topics, here are some ideas:

KF5 on Android:
- notification via KNotifications: does that API work for Android? can we 
build this without requiring widgets and dbus?
- async access to content:// URLs: seems to match the KIO API, does it make 
sense to use that?
- Intents vs Purpose: would Purpose be usable as a platform abstraction for 
intents, using system intents on Android and its own implementation on Linux?

Binary Factory/Deployment:
- how can I customize the build for my app? (e.g. enabling static builds of 
individual libs, add/remove individual dependencies,  etc)
- where is the meta data for apks/F-Droid coming from?
- how do we do app releases?

Android STL
- poppler >= 0.69 requires the LLVM STL rather than the deprecated GCC one, 
probably more to follow in the future. How do we deal with this/can we switch 
entirely/what are the side-effects of switching?
