Jump to: navigation, search

This page is for KDE SC 4.4 release party listings. Please follow the following template for readability.

If you have questions about organizing a release party you can contact Jussi - jussi01 at kubuntu.org or Lydia - lydia at kde.org

It'd be great if you would write a short report on the event and send it to kde-promo@kde.org or jospoortvliet atkdeorg, including some photos from the event. We'll then turn it into a dot story!
