Welcome to the KDE Community Wiki! KDE is a world-wide community of software engineers, artists, writers, translators, and creators who are committed to the development and distribution of Free Software. If that sounds like you, you're in the right place!
This is a repository of information for community members and contributors about collaboration on projects and goals. Actual work takes place on https://invent.kde.org.
