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.
