Hello Mario,

Do you mean Mairin and her Design Hub? That's a really great idea. The alternative to dropbox, however, is somewhat different. I think, Jan-Christoph was referring to the collaboration of GNOME and KDE to create a FOSS dropbox alternative, which isn't meant exclusively for the collaboration of designers and other parties involved.

I don't know what's been planned for the Design Hub already, but I think, it's possible for it to have a FOSS dropbox alternative package as a dependency. That way, we'll be hitting two birds with one stone :)

I am working with Miriam from GNOME/Fedora to make it a reality

and I have at least several times said that collaboration is the way to go.

Thank you for repeating it, I really think there is a lot of potential
in collaboration.
