That's my opinion at least. To have a fairly basic one-click installer that
makes the default players work. As opposed to bloating the user's system with
every multimedia software imaginable.
The 1-click will add the Packman repo, meaning the user can easily install
vlc, smplayer or whatever with full features at any time after doing the
initial 1-click codec install.

VLC is Qt, yes. But it's not KDE though. Still I think there are some solid
arguments for making it default in 13.2 (popular and well-known, very feature
rich, same engine as phonon default, actively developed).
But we'll see if I can convince the KDE team ;-)

Detlef Reichelt posted that to this list on 18 October with the subject
"opensuse-community.org". I don't think there's any mail archive available for

Yep. Afaik it's just mediawiki and the 1-clicks and the non-OBS part of the
YaST community repositories, that's hosted there. But there might be other
stuff running under opensuse-community.org that I'm not aware of.
I guess even a static html page might suffice. The wiki is really not used very
