Manifesto Compliance Plan

  • Open Governance: The project has a tradition of discussing proposed changes with interested users (bug reporters)
  • Free Software: All parts of Kup are under GPL2+ to ensure they stay free.
  • Inclusivity: Have already welcomed help from many translators and packagers. Accepts that KDE gives write access for any KDE developer.
  • Innovation: Commited to keep trying to find better solutions, invite and consider all proposals for improvements.
  • Common ownership: Moving this project to KDE umbrella is motivated partly by finding others to share ownership with.
  • End-user focus: I believe a big reason why Kup is already popular despite almost zero marketing is the effort on guiding decisions based on how the software is actually used in practice.
