Welcome to the KDE Community Wiki! This is the working area for community members and contributors and contains information they need to collaborate on projects and goals. This wiki also has guides for getting involved with the community, setting up a development environment for building KDE software, reporting bugs, translating products, and getting in touch with the different KDE teams and projects.
If you are interested in how to use KDE Frameworks and libraries for your software, please take a peek at the TechBase wiki for guides and tutorials.

Community Management and Coordination
These teams help keep the KDE community running smoothly by providing support, administration and arbitration:
- Community Working Group: keeping the community running smoothly
- KDE e.V.: financial and legal administration
- Incubator: process for adding existing projects to the KDE family
- Mentoring: programmes for introducing new contributors to KDE
- Promo: getting the word out about KDE
- Sysadmin: building and maintaining KDE infrastructure
Things to deal with:
- KDE.org Websites
- KDE — various documentation affecting the entire community
These teams work on areas common across lots of projects, sharing their expertise and working on tasks that individual projects often don't have the resources to manage on their own.
- Bug Triaging
- Release Team
- User Support
- Platform teams
- Visual Design Group
