This is a request for participation: The KDE-SIG  is atm lacking active contributors. And we really need some help in doing our job to provide a good KDE version in Fedora - especially with the upcoming KDE 4.0 and the inclusion in Fedora 9. If you don't know how you could help us here is a list (which is also in the wiki): * Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged for Fedora. Package it to improve the user experience. * Reviewers: Only a few persons are doing the kde-related reviews. Help us reviewing so that more packages could be included. * Testers: If you love KDE use the development version or the updates-testing repository and report bugs, bugs, bugs, request enhancements or features. We need your feedback to improve KDE. * Bugs: Become a BugZapper and help us with kde-related bugs. * Documentation writers: The documentation (esp. the DesktopUserGuide) is GNOME-centered. Help us to provide an equivalent for KDE. * Release Notes: The few people that are working on the new KDE-Spin are quite busy with development issues. If you want to help us in writing the release notes for the next version of Fedora we would give you all the info you need. * Wiki: Maintain http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KDE and keep it updated with end user information. * Artists: To provide a matching theme for nodoka-metacity-theme and provide an unified desktop experience. But this is not a complete list. If you're interested in making KDE in Fedora better, you're more than welcome. The list of participants in the wiki is atm not a list of active contributors. When setting up the wiki the only demand was an interest in KDE to be listed on this page. This list would be changed in the future to be culled down to the list of active (or reactivated) participants. This has become necessarely because there are only (less or more) 3 active contributors atm (plus Than Ngo). But the list indicates that there are enough people helping with KDE. If you are interested in joining the KDE-SIG please add your name to this list, answer to this mail, join us in #fedora-kde at freenode or attend the weekly KDE-SIG-Meetings (every tuesday 17:00 UTC). I will also add a topic to the agenda of the meeting next week to introduce new contributors.  The attendance at the SIG-Meetings is of course not required. But this way we would know of each other. And they are also the main place of discussing the next steps in the development (besides fedora-devel-list). If you have any further questions please answer to this mail or write me directly. And be sure: If your are willing to help you're welcome (regardless of your skills). :) Sebastian  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/KDE  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/KDE/Meetings/2007-11-06
