Gaurav Joined the Game

In June 2010, KDE e.V. launched the individual supporting membership program, asking people to Join the Game.

There are many reasons to support KDE with a regular financial contribution. For one thing, it enables KDE e.V. to have a predictable income. This money is used to support events that accelerate development of KDE software, enhance promotion efforts and help grow the Community. KDE contributors and users are scattered throughout the world and have many different backgrounds, so their reasons for contributing are diverse. Claudia Rauch and Jayson Rowe from the Join the Game Team asked supporting member Gaurav Chaturvedi why he joined the game.
