|15:00||Improving the "build from source" experience||Host: Michael Pyne <[email protected]>. Building KDE-based software from source is essential for developers, interested power users, and testers. It can potentially even impact our ability to attract and retain contributors. kdesrc-build has long been used for this function, but is this still the best experience for our users in 2018? Would different methods (e.g. OBS, KDE Neon, Docker containers) be better for different audiences? What are the most important 3-5 improvements to make? How can we streamline the initial setup process here to be seamless?|
