KDE at the Qt Contributors Summit
The Qt Contributors Summit is happening in Berlin from 16-18 June.
Please add your name if you are attending QCS, indicating if you are also representing another organisation or company, and what your t-shirt size is.
We will try order KDE "Part of the solution" t-shirts to make the KDE presence obvious, but feel free to bring your own.
Please indicate if you could attend a KDE meet-up/dinner on the Wednesday evening to discuss plans. A booking will be made for all people signed up by Monday.
We understand that many KDE attendees will firstly be representing your employer, but will appreciate your contribution from a KDE perspective whenever possible.

The following are technical issues KDE wants to address.
- KUrl stuff, KIcon stuff,
- KAction partly. The entire problem can't be solved, but some more data fields could help
- QLineEdit clear button
- QCompleter not powerful enough
- Itemviews stuff
- Mimetype stuff
- Geolocation core classes
- Port KConfig's INI parser to QSettings
- A standard C++ parser (unify the KDevelop, Smoke, PySide etc parsers)
The following are tasks concerning the Qt Community and Open Governance that KDE wants to address.
- Qt Addons website / CPAN for Qt
- Building a relationship with Digia
