KDE hosts a variety of websites, from highly dynamic sites to info, documentationational or promotional sites. Volunteering involves very different aspects ranging from
- writing content
- moderating in the forum
- coordinating announcements
- staying in contact with KDE developers to be aware of latest changes
- administering dynamic sites like forum, wikis
- watching out for spammers in those
- enhancing functionality of the codebase
- styling/designing the look of our sites
- etc etc
The webteam works closely with the promo and the sysadmin team in KDE to make sure KDE has a nice working and nice looking web presence.
