Real time Communication has traditionally been a detached feature of Desktop Computing, provided via stand-alone Instant Messaging clients with poor integration into the desktop experience. One of the primary goals of the KDE 4 series is to tighten integration between different components of the environment. The Realtime Communication and Collaboration (RTCC) project aims to tackle just this.
==[[/Getting_Involved | Getting Involved]]==
Our aims are:
==[[/Developers | Information For Developers]]==
* To integrate Real Time Communication deeply into the KDE Workspaces and Applications
* To provide a infrastructure to aid development of Collaborative features for KDE applications.
If you find these goals appealing, why not consider [[#Getting_Involved|getting involved]]. C++ programming is *not* a necessity.
==[[/Testers | Information For Testers]]==
==Technical Information==
==[[/Packaging_Guide | Information for Packagers]]==
* The RTCC project uses the cross-desktop [http://telepathy.freedesktop.org Telepathy Framework] as the basis for our work.
* We should try and reuse code from Kopete/other already existing code wherever possibly. However, this should be balanced with the need to refactor/rewrite where appropriate to keep the new code true to Telepathy idioms.
==Frequently Asked Questions==
You can find a list of answers to frequently asked questions here: [[Real-Time_Communication_and_Collaboration/FAQ|FAQ]].

==Getting Started==
Before you start playing with/hacking on the Telepathy integration stuff, you need to get it all compiled: [[Real-Time_Communication_and_Collaboration/Getting_Set_Up|Instructions]]
{{Warning|If you are a distro packager, please [[Real-Time_Communication_and_Collaboration/Packaging_Guide|see here for information on packaging KDE-Telepathy]]}}
==The Plan==
1) Build components equivalent to a traditional IM application, using Kopete code as much as possible, and integrating with other Pillars of KDE where appropriate.
2) Add advanced Telepathy features such as voice/video.
3) Build components and Convenience classes to enable real-time communication and collaboration features in any KDE SC app that wants them.
==Getting Involved==
At this stage, the best way to get involved is to contact the existing team, either on IRC (#kde-telepathy channel on irc.freenode.net) or on our [https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-telepathy mailing list].
A list of junior jobs to get started can be found [https://bugs.kde.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&short_desc=&product=telepathy&long_desc_type=substring&long_desc=&bug_file_loc_type=allwordssubstr&bug_file_loc=&keywords_type=allwords&keywords=junior-jobs&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&emailassigned_to1=1&emailtype1=substring&email1=&emailassigned_to2=1&emailreporter2=1&emailcc2=1&emailtype2=substring&email2=&bugidtype=include&bug_id=&votes=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&cmdtype=doit&order=Reuse+same+sort+as+last+time&field0-0-0=noop&type0-0-0=noop&value0-0-0= here].
===Current Ongoing Large Tasks===
If you want to work on a feature, clone the git repository on the server side and then clone your personal clone on your local machine. Make a new git branch and start working there. Try to keep commits small and meaningful. Once you are finished, push the branch on your server-side clone and ask someone of the team to review it. Once it is reviewed, you can merge it on the master repository (or ask someone else to merge it).
