Why do most KDE projects not publish releases at GitLab?

It seems strange that I can’t get any recent copies of Breeze from Releases · Plasma / Plasma Breeze visual style · GitLab. I realize that https://binary-factory.kde.org/ exists, so is it because projects don’t want to duplicate CI? I’ve never done automated compilation, so if this has an obvious answer, I apologize for not knowing it.

It was mentioned at some point that someone (Harald?) was working on automating this so our releases would show up as GitLab releases too.

Then do you think this would be acceptable as a trackable ticket in bugs.kde.org, @redstrate?

What kind of release are you talking about anyway?

We do release source code on https://download.kde.org/, but unless you are a distribution that’s not particularly interesting for you.

binary-factory is used for building distributable binaries for platforms like Windows.

We do not release binary packages for non-application components like Breeze anywhere

Generally just an archive file is provided for anything without a standard installation format, like Breeze - KDE Store provides.

Not really, there’s nothing to track

Then I’ll mark Why do most KDE projects not publish releases at GitLab? - #2 by redstrate as the solution.
