key quest: deployability 


key quest: device spectrum 

,----[ Quote ]
| The challenge here for KDE is: what do we 
| have that can also be spread out across the 
| spectrum?
| Not everything will move very much. I don't 
| see Digikam making the leap to smart 
| phones, for instance, nor should it try to 
| in my opinion. That's not the point of 
| Digikam, and trying to do so would probably 
| ruin it.


key quest: git

,----[ Quote ]
| As we move from 2009 to 2010, KDE's source 
| code is in a sort of odd limbo itself. The 
| majority of our code is in a subversion 
| revision control installation hosted on 
| svn.kde.org, but more and more of the code 
| we produce is ending up on gitorious.org. 
| The idea is to eventually have everything 
| moved over, with the exception of 
| translations (and documentation?) which 
| will stay in svn for the sake of the 
| translation teams workflow.


key quest: identifying projects in need

,----[ Quote ]
| This one should be really short, because 
| it's more of an open ended question and 
| some food for thought than a long 
| exploration of a tangly topic. That 
| question is: are we doing enough to ensure 
| that projects that start to wobble a bit 
| don't fall off the rails, crash and burn on 
| us?


scripting widgets for the Plasma Desktop 



KDM and Plasma: A future.

,----[ Quote ]
| I'd like to talk about KDM and Plasma
| combining forces. Well, since I always need
| to be coding something, regardless of
| whether or not I have any free-time, I have
| (begun to plan out and create(began today),
| a Plasma frontend for our login manager,
| kdm. Before anyone begins shaking their
| fists in the air and such, I must stress
| this...The Plasma frontend will be
| *optional*. So if you dislike Plasma that
| much for some reason or are close-minded
| (perhaps mutually inclusive?): the regular,
| currently used frontend can be used.
