The goal of this page is to have a list of tasks and associated names(!) and dates to track what we still have to do and where we are.
  
The page starts with a list of topics which still have to be added to the task list. Some of these have a list of tasks somewhere already, others have to be discussed. A few are of more strategic level, others are very practical.

Once a task is done, put it at the top & mark it as done. In time we'll clean them up. Feel free to pick up tasks which have no associated name (but announce/discuss on promo, you might get pointers there as well).

You are viewing an archived page. This page is in the Old category, which means it is no longer maintained, and the information in it is outdated. We are preserving it only for historical purposes.


The goal of this page is to have a list of tasks and associated names(!) and dates to track what we still have to do and where we are.

The name next to a taks can either mean the person to do it or to coordinate it - either way, he/she is responsible ;-)

The page starts with a list of topics which still have to be added to the task list. Some of these have a list of tasks somewhere already, others have to be discussed. A few are of more strategic level, others are very practical.

Once a task is done, put it at the top & mark it as done. In time we'll clean them up. Feel free to pick up tasks which have no associated name (but announce/discuss on promo, you might get pointers there as well).


Topics to discuss & turn into plans

  • The Mean and Lean Release Machine (TBD)
  • improve kdeslides & guide ppl talking about KDE
  • get more donations and support
  • involve companies by setting up a 'advisory board' like institute (in progress tnx to board!)
  • connect to local communities
  • setup a kde users/enthusiasts planet (userplanet.kde.org)
