KDE software is hosted on infrastructure managed by the KDE Sysadmins. If needed, a ticket can be opened on https://go.kde.org/systickets.
All accounts in the KDE infrastructure are synchronized in a unified system called KDE Identity which is free to use.
- The KDE projects are mostly using Git. The repositories can be browsed online via our Invent (GitLab).
- Find our guidelines and information about the GitHub mirror.
- Some projects such as i18n (to localize the programs) or some websites still use SVN. The repository can be browsed on https://websvn.kde.org/. Some guidelines could be found here.
- Commit access
- Find out how to get commit access.
In order to distribute and spread the software and other data produced by the community, KDE uses mainly two distribution networks.
Before pushing code to the repositories, the community has to review it.
- The current used system is GitLab. Before May 2020, KDE used Phabricator, and before 2015, KDE used Review Board.
- Project Management
- Projects are still managed with Phabricator. This functionality will gradually be migrated to GitLab.
- Continuous Building - Jenkins
- To ensure high-quality, KDE software operates a continuous integration system using Gitlab CI.
- KDE Developers are encouraged to blog about their actions. More information about blogging here.

- - Matrix
- - IRC
- - Mailing Lists
- - Jabber
