The Gardening Team is a group of people that cares about the global state of KDE software.
Mailing List: https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-gardening
The mandate of the team is to:
- Find *really* important bugs and ping people to fix them
- Find stale reviewboards and ping people to review them
- Bugzilla gardening, close old products etc
- Find projects that need love and give them some
For that we have various ideas:
Do routine passes over reviewboard trying to identify stale requests and finding people to help moving those.
Run something called "Love Project". The idea is to pick up a project that is somewhat stale, and for a short amount of time (let's say 2/3 months) try to get a new release out, fix the most important crashers/bugs, get the review boards released, etc. This goal of the team is *not* becoming the maintainers of the project, but maybe by virtue of the "Love Project" we can attract new contributors that decide to.
Since we're only a few maybe we can't do this all, so we're focusing on a particular "Love Project" by now, but you should join and help us do more!
