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
  • connect to local communities
