Just a few weeks ago we announced
the launch of the KDE Promo
Today we are launching a website,
promo.kde.org, to go along with it.
The site is dedicated to the promotion of KDE, and is for anyone who wishes
to contribute to KDE other than coding (for which we have
translating (for which we have i18n.kde.org).
A suggestion for an easy way to contribute today follows.
In preparing the press release for KDE 2.1 I thought it would be nice
if we could really show off our beautiful desktop to others. So I came
up with the idea of a KDE 2.1 Desktop Slideshow, which would combine thumbnails
from various categories into a slideshow presentation. If you would like to
contribute to this, fire up your favorite screenshot grabber and show us
what you got. If you don't have a server to place the image let me know
and I can give you a link to store it, just ask; otherwise please email me the link
only to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a brief sentence (what applications are being show,
how they are being used, etc.) and your name (so you can get credit).
The slideshow will have the following categories:
- full desktop shots -- not too busy but giving an overview of the whole thing;
- Konqueror shots;
- KMail shots;
- control center shots;
- panel shots (with applets/etc.);
- KDevelop shots;
- KOffice shots;
- other-language shots (particularly non-European languages); and
- anything else which you think shows a nice working KDE desktop.
