Purpose of the Sprint

To examine the current state and near future of the KDE Platform (kdelibs and kdebase-runtime), particularly as it relates to the growing usage of it in new contexts such as mobile or on Windows and MacOS and its traditional usage as a set of conveniences and consistency creators for KDE application development.

The sprint will aim to create an actionable, multi-year roadmap for kdelibs and kdebase-runtime and will examine issues of modularity, topicality and the inherent dichotomy between the KDE Platform as an application development framework (similar to Qt) and as a stand-alone platform to target (similar to, e.g. Windows, MacOS, etc.)


This sprint will aim to bring together developers who contribute to the KDE Platform directly, who use it in sophisticated applications, packagers of it and those involved in setting similar policies for Qt.

The proposed break down of attendees:

  • 12-15 kdelibs and kdebase-runtime commiters
  • 3-5 KDE application developers
  • 2-3 packagers
  • 1-2 people from the KDE Release Team
  • 1-2 Qt representatives

making for a total of 19-27 people.

If you would like to attend, please record your name below. Date organization will occur at a later point.
