QupZilla is a QtWebEngine based cross-platform web browser.

During the Akademy 2017 Konqueror BoF it was proposed to replace the aging Konqueror with it instead of trying to revive it. This was ok'd by the Konqueror maintainer David Faure.

Manifesto Compliance Plan


Open Governance

At the moment development/bugtracking/... happens on github:

The maintainer ok'd that this is moved over to KDE infrastructure during the incubation and the normal commit rights apply.

Free Software

All GPL v3+, no brainer.


No barrier known toward the contributors.


Not really applying to this area, that said, spearhead efforts on Android, Windows port and such.

Common Ownership

All clear no known barrier, anyone can contribute directly.

End-User Focus

Perfectly in target, software for children and schools.


  • Code of Conduct: supported
  • Contributor License Agreement: none
  • Established practices: CMake + Qt like most, code reviews except for most active core contributors
  • Source materials hosted on our git infrastructure (in playground/edu)
  • Online services, some are not on KDE infrastructure:
    • website (daily backup on KDE at [email protected]:backup)
    • wiki (daily backup on KDE at [email protected]:backup)
    • website source code (on GitHub, migration to KDE in progress)
    • mailing list (migrated to KDE)
    • voice assets (TODO need to migrate them on KDE subversion)
    • emails
    • source tarballs (TBD)
    • binaries for windows, mac, android (+ payment system)
    • KDE's bugzilla
  • KDE Licensing policy: a few copyright headers missing, otherwise following it
  • KDE branding guidelines: no reference to KDE yet
  • No patents
  • Agrees to transferring the GCompris brand in case of bus rampage :-)

Proposed actions:

  • website + wiki + should propose continuity plan to sysadmin (DONE)
  • voice assets: should migrate to KDE infra
  • source tarballs: should migrate to KDE infra
  • binaries: to be discussed on kde-community again to finally answer if yes or no we're fine with hosting on KDE infra those binaries which have a code to unlock them fully
  • Translations to be hooked to the KDE translation team (DONE)


No brainer, already participating in Randa, posting on planet, etc.

Candidate ready
