KDE.News ("the Dot") is KDE's official news website. It carries news, official announcements, features, interviews and - soon - opinion articles.
#We always make sure articles are reviewed, preferably at least by one person reasonably fluent in English

#We always announce upcoming articles on dot-editors and put theinfo about the article (time to be published, reviewer) on top of the article

The Dot is maintained by a team of editors, reachable via the Dot mailing list on dot-editors@kde.org.
#We don't do more than 1 big article a day and one small one

#We are kind of informal - a little joke should be possible. But the dot is professional enough not to use the term hacker but developer instead. (tricky rule, this one, it's about balance I'd say. I wouldn't want the dot to get boring but it should be kind of decent still)

#We cover, as much as possible, all feature releases of anything but very rarely development/maintenance releases except:
