The content of notes.kde.org will be exported - likely in ODT format -
prior to us shutting it down.
The resulting files will be made available on share.kde.org.

If there are things which need to be resolved prior to the shutdown of
notes.kde.org we can look into those.

While it is unfortunate that the links will be broken, we should be
able to make them relatively close (ie. send the user to a public view
of the folder on share.kde.org which contains all of the content
exported from notes.kde.org) so the user isn't too far from the
original link.

In terms of feature regressions i'm tracking, I see the following:
- Lack of editor highlighting
- No stored history aside from Nextcloud versioning
- Slightly harder to create new documents

Any other comments on this which I missed from the document?
